Nwando Ebizie

Nwando Ebizie fabulates live and digital numinous alternate realities, drawing on ritual cultures of the Black Atlantic, the neuroscience of sensory perception, music, immersive technologies, mythopoesis, biophilia, dance and performance art.

As an Afrofuturist neurodivergent person Nwando is focused on proposing neurodiversity as an egalitarian centre for change, whilst resting on the much-maligned wisdoms of the Black Atlantic where the body is a vessel for the spirit to transform the self and the community.

The Live Work Fund will enable Nwando to develop a practice that is more sustainable - personally, socially, economically, environmentally. Throughout 2021 she will focus on exploring new ways to generate multi-sensory immersive experiences and ritualistic community practices particularly for those disabled and oppressed by society including an artist-led retreat model for people who do not have access to the countryside. Nwando will be exploring new ways of using sound and how it interrelates with physiology and neurology, placing accessibility through the cross-modality of the senses at the heart of the creative work.
