Join Fredia Mitchell and Gallipot for a special meet and greet with local apothecary Alicia Jackson. Jackson is a counselor, life coach, spiritual healer, chakra reader, and much more. She spends her time helping others make dynamic changes in their lives. During this talk, Jackson will discuss her life as an apothecary in Third Ward, Houston as well as the traditions she uses to heal others.
Gallipot Contemporary Cooperative Apothecary is a modern space that carries products specific to our current health needs and interests. Inspired by a New Orleans pharmacy museum, Gallipot seeks to be instrumental in distributing community-made health and wellness goods. Our Apothecary is a social hub featuring warm spaces that urge one to linger and explore. Gallipot’s interior invites conversation and informed discussion on community needs while sharing our personal wellness challenges as well as victories. Gallipot will host events throughout the Round that will include an Apothecary Speaker who is currently practicing in Third Ward; a sharing event where viewers are invited to come and hear the stories behind Gallipot’s products as well as share their own health and beauty rituals; and a hands-on class teaching the application of cosmetics.
Gallipot is presented as part of Round 43: Small Business/Big Change: Economic Perspectives from Artists and Artrepreneurs.
