Self-Expression – Art corners, photography corners, and programming for dance, chanting, and self-expression will be curated. Bust out your dance moves. Share your story. Radiate your good energy.
Respect – Communities are showing up to share precious pieces of their culture and heritage to create an environment of belonging, healing, and harmony. We ask that we respect each other’s self expression, mindful of our neighbors with whom we will be sharing space. As one of the first in-person events since the COVID-19 pandemic began, we ask that you engage in consent-based practices to ensure everyone’s comfort in this re-entry period.
