Art Equals Politics: From the Streets to Social Justice
February 27, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join guest artist Nejma Nefertiti for an opening ceremony honoring the ancestors and to build a liberated space of expression using Hip Hop’s elements. Attendees are encouraged to use any and all elements of the art form. Everyone is welcome to participate in an open mic cypher/soul share. Free and open to the public!
Discussing the five elements of Hip Hop culture, Nejma will explain how Hip Hop is a tool for the legacy she creates and practices. She will share her process of inspiring, bringing awareness, and creating social change through the tenets of Mother Earth centeredness, self-determination, restoring the way of the Original peoples, and radical matriarchy. She also will touch on how Hip Hop and art are voices of the movement.
Parking in the Center’s lot is limited. Please use Braxton Place and West Washington Avenue.
Part of the spring 2020 Interdisciplinary Arts Residency with Ben Barson and Gizelxanath Rodriguez.
