1525 Intergenerational Conversations, Episode 3: Meet Honey Williams, a multidisciplinary multidimensional artist
WAHAD is a multimedia organisation, based in Nottingham. Currently consisting of 5 founding members, between the ages of 17-19. They each have varying passions they want to explore with you. As a collective, one of their fundamental aims is to provide a contemporary platform and arts space where a creative community can grow, and legacies can be showcased. Their team is also focused on the encouragement of young black people in all types of: artistic, social and cultural exploration. They work closely with external individuals to exhibit their excellence.
WAHAD's intergenerational project aims to bridge the gap between Nottingham’s young artists and those of more experience. Taking inspiration from the themes of Future of Futures, they will connect creatives across generations for conversation and collaboration. Together, we will explore:
How do we make young people aware of the grassroot arts in Nottingham?
What resources and support are available to young creatives?
What skills have we learned from the pandemic hat can help us improve the arts community father?
What is the future of creativity in the region?
In Episode 3, we have "She does it all" personified. Meet Honey a Nottingham based singer, songwriter, choir director, illustrator, graphic designer, muralist and recently a DJ.
We get a chance to hear about her highs and lows over the years as she answers these questions: What motivates you? How has the pandemic affected your art? Where do you aim to take this? What advice would you give to young artists? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Having a natural affinity for art and music led Honey down the wonderful path she is on now, but it has not been an easy journey through the years. From working with internationally renowned Joe Buddha, as she started her music career at 16 to starting her own "alternative" choir with other Nottingham residents, Honey has learned the importance of self-love and self-sufficiency. She has not let the perceptions of others, or the rejections of the world slow her down, as she aims to create a legacy and work in ways that helps people like her.
