Dance Floor As A Sacred Space

Sometimes we pray with our feet. We move to a rhythm that feels tenderly familiar, stirring up memories of our loved ones and our people. How can we understand the ancient and the contemporary? What does it mean when we take the bembe to the museum? Can we square the rigor of the academy with the intentions of parties to curate multifaceted spaces? How do we continue to honor the families and networks that are created with respect?

Join us as we gather to active the topics discussed in the community conversation on The Dance Floor As Sacred Space as a part of the Ancestors in Training series at the Caribbean Cultural Center.

 

Music by DJ BEMBONA and UPTOWN VINYL SUPREME

Fortunes by CHIQUITA BRUJITA

Curated by VERONICA AGARD

 

Tickets: $5 in advance and $10 at the door but no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds.

Who Heals the Healer?

Who Heals the Healer?

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE

Who Heals the Healer: The Convergence

"For those who feel too much, may you guard your position as holy."

INTENTION
As tensions rise, so has the need for more healers. The waymakers, the agents of change, the ones armed with compassion.

But how many folks who step into this work have become burnt out or hurt along the way? What kind of long-term impact can we have if we don’t share the same healing methods we give to others with ourselves? How can we be a support system for others without depleting ourselves? How can we develop tools to thrive as opposed to just surviving? Who heals the healer?

A large scale conference of the event series, the intention of the convergence is to cultivate an ecosystem rooted in community care for wellness, social justice and healing practitioners who can hold space for one another as they continue to hold space for community. The curated techniques and solutions from this series will be shared widely in the form of a publication in 2018.
