I had the privilege of working with Seshat through her Make.Do sessions at the Petworth Neighborhood Library. It was a collaborative project that we entitled Resident Artifact. We collected stories and encouraged residents and business owners to create collages using found objects that represent their community and evoked their memories. I found working with Seshat to be incredibly inspiring. I value her open perspective and her ability to see the real needs. She is also able to truly collaborate - an example that was very helpful for me to learn from. Her innovative projects are impossible to ignore and irresistible to participate in.

Seshat is an unstoppable creative force. She greets every project with open arms and inspires others to bring their best ideas to a project. I first met her when she reached out to me about my documentary project Red Line D.C. She invited me to join an art and activation event that she was curating called DeanwoodxDesign, which drew me to a beautiful community space in my hometown that I was ashamed to admit I had never been to before. A resourceful collaborator, Seshat acts as connective tissue for fellow DC artists, while simultaneously nurturing her own work. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and love following her creative journey because she embodies the spirit of the mantra she promotes: Make. Do.

Partnering with Seshat at one of my coffeeshop popups was a great experience! Not only is she very easy to work with but she also brings a level of creativity that encourages others to think outside of the box. The earth day project that she curated allowed my customers to not only celebrate our worlds green space but also paralleling that to our immediate community of Deanwood Washington DC. It would be an honor to work with Seshat on a future project!
