Youth Drum Workshop
Youth Drum Workshop on March 7th, 4:30-6:30 pm in person at the Rootead Studio (505 East Kalamazoo Ave. Suite 3). This workshop is open to ages 8+.
We are limiting the workshop to 8 participants. Parents/guardians please drop your child off and then pick them up again at 6:30 to observe COVID guidelines for the amount of people in the space. Masks will be required for all participants.
We are so honored to have Guest Artist Shangojimni joining us to facilitate the workship. He is a drummer, diviner, therapist, adventurer, and builder of community through rhythm, sound, and movement. For the last 25 years, he has steeped himself in the study, participation, and presentation of African-centered, Native American, and Asian traditions and lore. These traditions have taken him to Brazil, Belize, Nigeria, around the U.S., and Thailand to apprentice with master percussionists, diviners, and healers. Your children will be inspired after spending the afternoon drumming with Shangojimni.
The value is $25, and we invite you to pay what you can.
Youth Wellness Fellowship
We are so excited to announce our brand new Youth Wellness Fellowship. We are looking to train individuals to go into Kalamazoo High Schools and facilitate yoga and/or dance workshops.
We strongly encourage BIPOC and all genders to apply.
Applications are opened March 1st - March 22nd. Facilitators will receive a stipend for their training and service. Here is a video from the Info Session for more details.
