Why Radical Healing

                   

                    “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence. It is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare."
                    ~ Audre Lorde (1934-1992)

A world in crisis requires radical healing. This moment of crisis has separated us and exposed the violence and inequities that have been breaking and suffocating us for years. But it has also inspired extraordinary outpourings of community care, solidarity, and uprisings for Black and Indigenous lives and essential workers and freedom from violence. It is a time of pain but one of tremendous possibility. It is a time that calls for renewal, bold imagination and, of course, dancing! A time of healing for our bodies and souls for the long haul of building a better world. Art and music restore our spirits and energize our mobilizations in hard times. Some of the greatest songs come from movements. In our concert, we are lifting up the often invisible role of Black and indigenous women in mending and transforming our communities and world in the face of violence and destruction. This musical celebration centers the healing power of their art in leading us toward wholeness.
