About

KHEMET CALLING

This project is a global initiative to make art for peace and to deliver prayers of friends, known & unknown, to Egypt.


Visual artist Sadee Brathwaite and performance artist/vocalist Lisa Barnard Kelley are answering a call.

An ancient summons to walk the land of Egypt, to bring forth the harmonious principles of the ancestors, to facilitate the world's need for balance, justice and compassion.

Khemet Calling is a collaborative art project conceived by Sadee and Lisa based on their journey through Egypt in February 2012 with the Ministry of Maåt.  The project documents the artists' experiences on the Nile and at various sacred sites of Egypt.  Through sketches, photographs, video and audio recordings, the artists will gather the source materials for a multi-media interactive installation to be erected in Kingston, NY.

"The Temple" will feature painted murals, sound, and live performance - inspired by the resonance of the sites and prayers - in answer to the call.  This art installation will be open to the public and the live performances will be streamed live on “The Temple” website.

THE ARTISTS NEED YOU!

Sadee and Lisa will collect prayers, as wishes and intentions, from loved ones and friends (known & unknown) to take with them on their venture to the sacred sites.  As they sail the Nile and tour the healing temples, the artists will invoke the prayers using art and sound as instruments of active peace.  These prayers will serve as further source material for "The Temple" and become an integral part of it's construction, visually and aurally.

By funding this campaign you help cover the costs of travel, art supplies, audio & video equipment, building materials, and exhibit & performance production.

With 14 years of combined studies in Egyptian cosmology, symbology and archetypes, Sadee and Lisa will take their first visit to this ancient land, known as Khemet, to explore their core identities as women, as artists, and as ordained minister-priestesses of the Ministry of Maåt.

The Ministry of Maåt is an international, spiritual and educational organization nurturing the ideal of a harmonious and balanced world community through the support of women's holistic well-being.  The Ministry organizes journeys to sacred sites around the world.  This trip to Egypt is one of those sacred journeys.

Sponsor Sadee and Lisa's journey to Khemet!  Help build "The Temple"!
