THURS., SEPTEMBER 24th
7-9:30 PM PST
WHAT: A Black & Indigenous open mic communion on mortality, ancestry, and affirming our lives.
WHO: Black & Indigenous attendees/participants only
COST: Free - donations are welcome if, and only if, you have above-average means.
Drawing on some of our own ancestors’ practices of public and community-held grieving and celebration, we invite you to a virtual open mic communion for Black and Indigenous people.
OPEN COMMUNION IS FOR:
- Witnessing and being witnessed
- Grieving, bereaving, and honoring what we’ve lost and love
- Celebrating the full spectrum of our complex and intersectional lives––from grief to unbridled joy and everything in between.
Whatever you’re carrying, however heavy or light, lay it down. Let the community hold it with you.
We Are Tomorrow’s Ancestors (WATA) is an ongoing series of interactive performances, conversations, and open mic sessions that hold space for Black and Indigenous people to commune on mortality, ancestry, and affirming our lives. As always, free for attendees, supported by the WATA Fund, a reparations fund.
