[Virtual] November Artists of Color Council Meeting: A Post-Election Gathering

12:30pm – 3:00pm
November 15, 2020
  • This is a freely offered event for those who identify as people of color.
  • AoCC typically meets on the second Saturday of the month. Please note this event takes place on a Sunday.
  • This event will take place via Zoom.

This month, in lieu of our regular meeting, the Artists of Color Council will offer a gathering. While we continue to rest in this liminal space of uncertainty, we will center healing, community resiliency, rest and conversation surrounding movement and joy.

The gathering will open and close with grounding, inviting in and transitioning out of the meeting with a guided meditation offering based in breath. A rooting remembering, a turning towards orbit, a staying in circulation, a time-traveling amongst, nurtured and led by lily bo shapiro.

In between, community members Angie Pittman, Ashon Crawley and Malcolm-x Betts will join us for a conversation centering performance practice as a possibility for radical Black joy. How can practice be offered as an antidote?

We hope you can join us in beloved community. This gathering is freely offered. Please RSVP to Council Coordinator Jessica Angima at [email protected].

This event will take place via Zoom. Please note, this is an intentional and protected space for those who identify as people of color. We hope that you will honor this and refrain from RSVPing if you do not identify as such.
