a homage / celebration

a unique historical cultural political artistical organisation
with origins in the 1980’s
when civil rights activism was still vibrant across many countries
and there it was, Fountainhead, founded against indifference
and therefore rising

for our togetherness all the time

is like going to the mountain top
and seeing the promised land
for all to understand
what Martin Luther King prophesied
so that our lights and souls can shine bright
here and now and far and wide
in colour
inspired by Africa
which is the root of the fountain head
inside us all

with which we can see the Promised Land
we can see it, watch it
on screen, on stage, on TV
in dance, in action, in the spoken word, the written

word an in deed
indeed, Fountainhead
is like the Mountain Top

we will go there, with each other
friends, colleagues, kings and queens, sister, brother
and pay homage to those who went there before us
so we can follow their footprints
footprints which are no longer in the sand
but pointing to the mountain, high
crossing rivers, deep
and oceans, deeper still
yes we are going
we are marching
we are dancing
we are singing
we are speaking

we are going to the Mountain Top
with Fountainhead!

so let’s celebrate
the top of the mountain
with the Head of the Fountain
for our lives.
