Natural light and wafting incense, works of art and elements of nature shape the space of Jasmine Dillavou’s studio in downtown Colorado Springs.
Jasmine, 25, works full-tilt within the creative life. As a full-time henna artist at La Henna Boheme in downtown Manitou Springs. As a contemporary artist with an interdisciplinary vision that moves across performance, installation, sculpture and writing. And as a voice that is active and strong in the regional arts community.
Jasmine shares with Humanitou about her experiences living in the Caribbean diaspora and about the tipping point when she recognized she felt the fire to stand up and become an artivist.
We talk about what space really means, in its broader senses, for artists and each other. Politics, the power of performance, love and accountability. We cover a lot of meaningful ground that lights that fire Jasmine shares.
