Seed A World Syllabus
Outlined in the syllabus are 9 weekly classes helping you get clarity on what’s for sell and what’s sacred in your practice and how to effectively communicate the interdisciplinary possibility brewing inside the world you’re building.
A magnificent learning adventure/voyage I am currently experiencing. Ayana and Seeda School are brilliant! If you would like to learn coding through the teachings of black feminism + do so with a lovely mentor, look no further.

This Retreat Is For You If...
- You have many different skills, curiosities and passions but aren't clear how they all might relate. Spoiler Alert: They absolutely do!
- You have trouble clearly communicating your interdisciplinary practice in residency/grant applications, on your website, to your community and to potential customers, clients and patrons.
- Somewhere along the line your creative practice became solely focused on generating revenue and you want to re-center your practice inside desire.
- You are interested in generating revenue inside your creative practice, but want to get clear on what's sacred and what's for sale.
- Your creative practice has been dormant for months or years and you want to return to it with renewed intention rooted in divine desire instead of fear.

What Seeda School Worldbuilders Are Saying
"Seeda School is a refreshing learning experience that has solidly placed me at the convergence of multiple streams of time: it has affirmed the curiosity i’ve had since childhood when i was coding on MySpace, supported my present creative practices, and oriented me towards the expansive possibilities of (en)coding liberatory futures. Ayana has been a gracious, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic steward throughout the coaching program, which has made building these skills that much more fun and approachable. i glowingly recommend Seeda School!"
— Dkéama Alexis
"I began learning from Seeda School as a fan, observing the information passively through Instagram. My desire to learn coding, specifically HTML and CSS grew and I decided to enroll in the course. While the intersection of Black feminism and coding might feel out of place, this is the kind of work that allows us to imagine and co-create new futures, rather than following a prescriptive dominant narrative. I have loved working alongside Ayana. She is patient, kind, and diligent as a teacher and community leader. Since starting this program, I gained the confidence to redesign my company's website and discover/develop new methods of data collection for my research. It's completely recontextualized my work, which involves recovering the histories of Black women. I was recently admitted to a graduate program in Design (in part I'm sure) to the creative and meticulous work I've developed at Seeda School."

Meet The Artist and Teacher Behind Seeda School
Hi! I'm happy you're here. Allow me to introduce myself, I am a transdisciplinary artist and co-author of the non-linear, speculative fiction novella Cykofa: The Seeda Origin Story written during my Ginkgo Bioworks residency in collaboration with creative writing software I engineered at the Recurse Center. I am also the founder of Seeda School, which hosts a digital retreat for worldbuilders with a desire to seed or return to an interdisciplinary practice.
Leveraging over a decade's worth of experience visioning and releasing interdisciplinary projects, today I enjoy a transdisciplinary practice where I'm able to braid opportunities in form of fine art and biotechnology residencies, software engineering fellowships, guest lecturing on design, invitations to creative conferences, acceptance into artist focused business incubator, institutionally sponsored writing retreats and more by using the framework of worldbuilding to weave and clearly communicate my constellation of skills and curiosities.Website
