Winter Street Drum Performance for Womxn/Trans/GNC folks
Do you love drum lines, marching bands, or blocos? Are you excited about using art and creativity as a form of activism and community building? Join our 8-Week Winter session where we explore & share our ancestral rhythms and songs leading up to our Drumluck intergenerational community gathering. Learn new skills/rhythms, dig deep into your ancestral landscape, and share our collective experiences via drumming, play/movement and song.
Holding values of social justice, creative expression and skill-building, this workshop is open to all levels of player from never-drummed to proficient drummer. We aim to create a welcoming space for Womxn, trans and gender non-confirming people of color to be loud, active participants of culture and build community. We prioritize and center the participation of people of color in this class, especially Black and Brown people.
Winter 2019 is currently open to people of color [POC], spots for non-POC are currently full. Priority enrollment for Black & Brown folk.
