Something's In the Water: Check out our Schedule of Events!

We are mere days away from  Something's in the Water - a 2 day creative event for National Day of Racial Healing. This dynamic and interactive event will take place @ Studio Two Three (3300 West Clay Street in Scott's Addition) on Monday, 1/21 (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day) and Tuesday, 1/22 (National Day of Racial Healing) from 2-10:30pm both days.

 This event is free and open to the public. We are working with more than 30 collaborators and will feature a mix of activities including art exhibitions, live music performances, conversations, spoken word, workshops, DJ dance mashups, food and drinks. We also will have Artivism activities for children & youth from 2-4pm both days and we will create a live exhibition of these works including drawings, paintings, collages, and puzzles as well as have conversations to discuss what racial equity and justice is all about. 

 This is a massive way to begin 2019 and to ground the importance of exploring our city and country’s journey towards truth, racial healing, transformation and inclusive narrative change. We will also be launching the Narrative Change Collaborative during the event, a 12-month program with creative visionaries unearthing and sharing untold histories about our city. Visiting artist, Nzilani Simu, is joining us from Kenya to share two workshops on East African techniques in hand lettering and kanga pattern making. She will also display designs created for the Narrative Change Collaborative and take part in a series of conversations during her time in Richmond.
