The #VISUAL17E Grounding, presented by the Northern Griots Network at The Origin Arts & Community Centre on December 9, was a brilliant blend of poetry and painting: this is one example with Roua Aljied, aka Philosi-fire speaking courageous words in conjunction with the incredible images of Kalkidan Assefa. Some of the artwork created for the project will remain on display at Origin.
