Breakdown

Sweet. Honeycomb Archive & Programming 

Sweet. Honeycomb Programming & Archive is the honeycomb of Sweet Herbal Honey Apothecary that focuses on community-led and centered creative projects, both physically and virtually. Sweet. Programming collaborates on creative programming such as events, community exhibitions, healing circles, markets, drives, community projects, skill sharing workshops, interviews, conversations and more.

 

As the key person behind the scenes, Jaee will work with you in manifesting your community idea(s) and goals, step by step and practically. Using the arts for creative solution building, this supports community in starting, rebuilding and expanding existing platforms, brands and programming.

For collaborative opportunities, we also connect community needs with other creators to meet that need. This collaboration connects creators and potential organizations together while assisting creators with bringing their ideas into fruition. This happens step by step through idea breakdown, intention and outcome setting, planning and scheduling, platform & target audience, marketing plans, and more.

After the fulfilment of collaboration, we will then add your project and background to Sweet. Honeycomb Archive. Sweet Honeycomb Archive is our digital archive where all community collaborations can be found. This includes background of the creator, information about the event, takeaways (lessons, notes) as well as clips and recaps for folks who couldn't attend to still use and apply. The archive also acts as a space for creators and their projects to be referred to as a digital portfolio and profile for their resume or future projects. We also offer recommendations and reference letters after each project, if needed.

from the artist:

 

 As a creator who manifests collective focused installations, activations and larger size works, I found difficulty in being able to personally connect with each and every person who viewed my work. Making these creations has opened a door for one-on-one connection with each person who buys a product and/or connects with me through markets.

 

This is special as it gives me the chance to create smaller works of art that are accessible, intentional and intuitive calling to the owner. Since childhood, I wanted to make work that could be accessible for communities who may not have the financial means to purchase large works of art.

 

Sweet. Herbs is honoring my community(ites) and challenges the ways we truly view art as healing for person and collective. Each product's conception came from me using these creations to assist me along my journey and they have supported me as a liberated guide from many forms of daily sickness, mental health and dissociation with body, mind and spirit. ​

With these assisting energies, each product caters to a beautiful wholistic healing for the owner.

Through intuitively making these creations, each product has an internal call to its owner that creates this wondrous and magical moment of surety and recognition. These products are made with the intention that they are called to the special person it's meant for.

Asé O: Descendents of Roots & Legacy Empowerment Program 

Ase’ O: Descendants of Legacy & Roots is the branch of Sweet Herbal Honey Apothecary that acts as our educational empowerment program + curriculum that centers literacy, creative arts, ancestral understanding storytelling, artivism, identity exploration, cultural awareness, intersectionality, community empowerment, archiving, intergenerational & legacy and understanding and community connection.

 

Ase’ O is an inclusive, affirmative and community centered program that centers communities of color, yet in accepting anyone regardless of race, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious or spiritual belief, disability and/or economic background. Our goal is to highlight the importance of intergenerational bridging, which is past, present and future. We have the power to relearn from the past, bridge the gaps that keep us apart and create a brighter, interdependent, sustainable and equitable future.

Through this program, we use creative expression to further uplift leadership, public speaking, resume and skill building, literacy, business mapping and discovering our creative voice. We discover language to our everyday experiences that introduces technical, ancestral, traditional, cultural and explorational ways of understanding and unpacking the world through our stories. This presents itself as a series of classes, one day classes, community workshops, mindfulness practices and creative field trips that exposes youth and adults to various forms of culture. This also present through mentorships that connects youth with practicing community centered creatives and businesses in desired fields. Mentorships are dependent on agreement with participating individuals, institutions and organizations. 

Our educational program can be integrated in educational institution settings, homes and community spaces. 

We explore these realms through emotional, historical, socio-political, global and internal awareness that highlights the needs of having fun while learning integrative processes of subject life learning through the arts.
