This Cup

This Letter is created by Black and Indigenous artists for the WAG in solidarity with the ongoing Black Lives Matter and Justice for Black Lives movements.⁠

Chukwudubem Ukaigwe (@chukwudubemukaigwe) is a Nigerian born song, dispersed by a transient Atlantic breeze, currently passing through Treaty 1 Territory, so called Canada. He consciously uses a variety of mediums to relay a plurality of ideas at any given time. He views his art as a conversation, or a portal into one, and in some instances, as an interpretation of this ongoing exchange. Chukwudubem weighs an occurrence, feeling, or idea on a scale and then creates a narrative in his own language.⁠
