v. t. nayani (9'knee) is a working artist, facilitator, programmer, and producer, with dreams of creating borderless heart work, within and beyond our little-big galaxy. at the centre of her heartwork is care for community, which grounds how she approaches her crafts. she is committed to co-creating feminist realities through her collaborations in community, working at the intersections of the arts and advocacy. for over a decade, she's been weaving the elements and creating new worlds in cinema, television, and digital playgrounds. through her adventures in sound and picture, nayani explores that which is real and imagined, focused on both excavating the past and reimagining multiple futures. nayani is also a hatha and restorative yoga teacher (CYT-200) working with Brown Girls Yoga, and a full-circle doula committed to reproductive justice. she is grateful to her ancestors, elders, guides, and comrades, for ensuring she reaches the here, now, and beyond. remember"spaceships don't come equipped with rear view mirrors" - 3 stacks
