Curated by Nolly Babes and released in collaboration with Penélope Archive, "Pray...Pray" offers a glimpse into the soulful journey of the Nubia train. The frame is captured from Atteyat El-Abnoudy's 2002 film "The Nubian Train", illuminating the annual pilgrimage from Cairo to Aswan undertaken by Nuba residents on the eve of Eid Al-Adha. Over a 16-hour night trip, the artwork unveils a convergence of music and games, transforming the train into a dynamic space where Nubian traditions come alive.

Providing expertise in supporting survivors of domestic and sexual abuse, Sistah Space focuses on the intersectionality of racism and gender-based violence.

Nolly Babes, co-founded by Ebele Anueyiagu & Tochi Anueyiagu, is a social media archive that spotlights iconic scenes from late 90s and early 2000s Nollywood. Dedicated to showcasing the beauty and creativity of Nigerian people, it emerged from founders' frustration with underestimations of indigenous cinema. Beyond Instagram, Nolly Babes currently extends its cultural celebration to curated experiences, styling, apparel, and more. Serving as a poignant reflection on the Black feminine reality, it addresses societal norms and expectations, creating powerful narratives within Nollywood's cinematic landscape.
