Superheroes—Write Your Own Story!
A Family Hair Party with Urban Bush Women
Hair Parties are interactive workshops—combining conversation, guided movement, and excerpts from Urban Bush Women's Hair and Other Stories. Using hair as a lens through which to examine systemic racism in America, Urban Bush Women fosters bravery and risk-taking to unapologetically delve into conversations on race in the United States. This Hair Party will be a celebratory family space. Perfect for families with children ages 2 to 12 who are interested in sharing their own stories through collage, embodied storytelling, and guided movement, participants will explore new paths on the roads to equity and liberation!
Join UBW at the third annual BRIC OPEN, an arts and ideas festival that has grown from BRIC's values of creativity, inclusivity, participation, and community. This year’s festival interrogates the possibilities of justice and empathy and creates space to find freedom in self-expression and to witness others in their full humanity.
