I am proud to be both a Wavemaker and Animal Husbandry Volunteer (when it is accessible to me) with Sealife Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Release (SR3), an animal health, safety, and advocacy organization that started the first and only hospital dedicated to marine wildlife in the Pacific Northwest! Click the photo above to learn more about SR3's important work and to become a Wavemaker like me! You can also click the image of the sea lions napping in the water, fins lifted to the side in parallel tandem like synchronized swimmers to learn about what to do if you find an injured marine animal, as well as what habits and behaviors are common and happy for different kinds of aquamarine mammals.

NEVE (they/(s)he) is a multidimensional, multidisciplinary terpsichorean artist of the stage, street, field, stream, and screen. They are a mixed Mahas Nubian who grew up in Lenni Lenape country and is now living in Duwamish and Coast Salish lands and traveling wherever they have access and an invitation. (S)He is a 2020 Pina Bausch Fellow (Pina Bausch Foundation), a 2022 Arc Artist Fellow (4Culture), a 2022 Disability Futures Fellow (USArtists, Ford, and Mellon Foundations), and a 2023 Artist2Artist Fellow (Art Matters Foundation).
NEVE loves life, the delights and pains of embodiment and love, the sparkle-ache and promise of growth, the higher power inside all of us, the earth's lullabies and war cries, drinking color, and kissing/thinking/dreaming/learning/winning with their local and international queer family (especially their cat child Caravaggio whose IG is @catmasteroflightandshadow ).
NEVE believes in the Goddess, Collective Access and Liberation, Transformative Justice, Land Back, Right of Return, Reparations, Anarchism and Communism (in relationships and governance), collectivity and connectivity, the Loch Ness Monster, the Multiverse, the concept that all living beings are people, and You.
They are currently a contributing writer for the South Seattle Emerald and collaborate with their confidante in arms, fellow Seattle multidisciplinary artist Saira Barbaric as themselves, and as Mouthwater (Dance).
Stay tuned for news of the 2024 Mouthwater dance festival, which Mouthwater is producing as Velocity Dance Center Made in Seattle artists.
