We Are the Seeds
We Are the Seeds of CultureTrust Greater Philadelphia is committed to amplifying Indigenous voices through the arts. The organization was founded by a team of Indigenous women who are dedicated to honoring Native arts and cultures as a means to understanding Indigenous peoples, the history of what is often called the United States, and who we all are as American people today. We Are the Seeds produces cultural events that feature Indigenous fine art, music, dance, fashion, literary, and culinary art. Additionally, Seeds hosts interactive art programs that focus on educating and empowering the youth.
We Are the Seeds honors the voices of Native artists, performers, educators, and change-makers. Through their work, they celebrate and share who they are as Native people today. The organization produces cultural events, programs, and workshops that celebrate and support Indigenous arts, artists, and Native communities throughout North America. In Philadelphia, the organization has produced over 145 programs. They've partnered with major Philadelphia organizations to create additional programming that included Family Arts Academy at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts; an arts workshop at CultureFest at Penn Museum; a finale performance for One Book One Philadelphia at the Free Library; as well as a year-long collaboration with public programming for the Philadelphia Area Creative Collaboratives Program at Haverford College.
