Workshops for youth and adults. Our classes focus on street drumming but incorporate singing, movement, cultural context, self-reflection, and composition. Workshops create access to free and culturally relevant music education, and create intentional spaces for gender liberation and justice. Facilitators are practicing artists and cultural workers rooted in Oakland. Workshops will take place at schools & community site.
