Sunday Night 1/17
Monday Morning 1/18
- 1) The Water We Swim In: A Conversation about White Supremacy Culture – facilitated by Jimi Two Feathers, Aron DiBacco and Mahmoud El-Zeftawy.
- 2) DNE Cultural Appropriation Workshop Culture: Appreciation or Appropriation? – facilitated by Adia Lara-Thein, Maria Lara and Dev Luthra
The Water We Swim in: Conversation about White Supremacy Culture
- In small and large group discussions we will explore three elements of “white supremacy culture” to learn about them, think about how they might show up in our own lives, and reflect on how they show up in the DNE community. No prior knowledge required, but an open mind is essential.
DNE Cultural Appropriation Workshop
Culture: Appreciation or Appropriation?
Facilitators: Adia Lara, Dev Luthra, Maria Lara
- This offering, co designed by Adia Lara, Maria Lara and Dev Luthra, is an opportunity to pool our collective knowledge and expression of culture at DNE; to notice the difference between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation. The format will be interactive: we will create a web chart of activities and cultural expressions within the community and examine how they function.
What: A DNE Virtual MLK Jr. Weekend Event!
When: Beginning Sunday 7:30pm 1/17 through Monday 1/18 early afternoon.
Why: Because we want to honor the legacy and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. together while dancing, learning, and connecting.
Who: The whole DNE community of family and friends.
More details are coming soon! Look forward to seeing you on our screens!
