Africa is the land of the Sun yet still about 600 million Africans do not have access to electricity, especially in rural areas. Without electricity to power light, many nightly activities are almost impossible and the streets are not safe to walk. Senegalese Hip-Hop artist Akon, has decided to use his success to give back to his people back home in Africa by teaming up with many others in order to come up with a proper solution to Africa’s energy problems using it’s own natural resources, which is Rastafari way. The Akon Lighting Africa project aims to meet those electrical needs by supplying villages, streets, businesses and homes throughout the continent, with solar energy systems. There is already installations in 11 different countries so far since the project began last year in February and much more work to be done. Akon Lighting Africa has many positive benefits that has helped change African’s lives by creating more jobs and making the streets safer at night, simply by creating light with the energy of the sun. Hopefully this story will inspire other celebrities or even you, to help create a brighter future for the next generations.

Medulla Art Gallery presents, local Trinidad & Tobago visual artist Brianna McCarthy’s ‘Vetiver Night Women’ series. If you are in Trinidad and have the chance, you should check out this amazing exhibition which opened on May 14th and will be available for viewing until June 5th, 2015. Brianna is a self taught artist that communicates visually through a variety of mixed media from traditional paint to masking and performance art as well as fabric collages and installation pieces. For her, this ‘Vetiver Night Women’ series is a reflection on traditions inspired by an exploration of the female perspective in the course of revolutions, as they carry within their beings ancestral memories for descendants. In her work she aims to open up new discussions examining issues of beauty, stereotypes, representation as well as documenting the process.
Each of her stylized woman has a goddess like presence as they are her interpretation of the heavenly night sky and constellations. She establishes every woman as guardians of the Universe, opposed to the view of men holding the standard of power. Brianna mystically paints stars on black bodies representing the original dark matter of the cosmos and her use of vetiver invokes the plants magical feminine association. She explores the physical and metaphysical worlds as she takes us through the processes of self-discovery and self-actualization within known and unknown spaces. As you enter into her dream world full of vibrant colors it is almost as if you are having an intimate conversation with the Universe and its divine feminine energy.
