Here are the services I offer to the community, updated in Fall 2021.
Facilitation & Mediation
The catalogue of Diaspoura has been performed on hundreds of stages across Turtle Island. Anjali books as a solo performer, and on ideal occasions they will arrange performances with dancers and instrumentalists.
Book Diaspoura to perform for your community event by writing to DIASPOURA@GMAIL.COM including a date, location, honorarium, event description, and COVID-19 arrangements.
Until the official end of the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor bookings must require proof of vaccination or recent negative test at the door. Other requests will not be answered.

Along with creating the front and backend of Diaspoura's music, Anjali is a passionate web artist who has been hired by comrades and organizations to create homes for their works to live online.
As they expand their practice in website design and development, they welcome commissions from other artists, professionals, and organizations.

Through the spirit of the abolitionist movement, Anjali has been called to serve as a facilitator and mediator for groups of 2 or more people.
Having intervened in dozens of difficult settings, from house meetings to staff rooms to romantic relationships, Anjali has cultivated an intuitive process which leaves
participants with more
clarity, compassion, and resolution. The intentional act to hire a facilitator during conflict, frustration, or fall out is a radical act of belief
in a world without carceral punishment. Inquire at DIASPOURA@GMAIL.COM with a brief description of the circumstance and people involved to receive an hourly rate.
