“It is Better to Speak: The Art of Community Healing”

11 04 2007

When: Thursday, April 12, 2007; 6:30 PM
Where: McGavren-Greenberg (School of Public Health) Room 1304
Sponsored by the Minority Student Caucus

UBUNTU Artistic Response presents an interactive poetic performance
designed to empower participants to use poetry, movement and sound to
make the unspeakable speakable in communities of color. This program
addresses violence against women of color as a public health issue and
provides participants with the space to envision what healthy
intra-community relationships could look like.

The program will consist of an interactive performance by the members
of the UBUNTU collective followed by sonic and written exercises which
will allow participants to speak about their own relationships to
gendered violence and will provide them with tools to use in their
community work.

UBUNTU believes that healing begins when we say the things we never
thought we could say, both expressing the pain that we have
experienced and witnessed and envisioning a future that affirms us.
