An afternoon of crafting and collage derived from a hands-on activity used by company members to create their own super hero personae. Participants will be guided through prompts to create their own works of art and translate their visual creations into movement.

With Urban Bush Women company member Chanon Judson and facilitators from BOLD (Builders, Organizers and Leaders through Dance).

Hair Parties are interactive workshops—combining conversation, guided movement, and excerpts from Urban Bush Women's Hair and Other Stories—that encourage participants to re-examine closely held beliefs about themselves in society. 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 relations in the United States.
