We enjoy and value getting together with community members to see art, performance and film that is changing the way we think about social justice, about ourselves and each other. We are pleased to announce our next engagement.

lenelle moiseLenelle Moïse’s Ache What Make braids sensuous odes, urgent prayers, layered songs and bright ritual. Whether she’s talking about post-earthquake Haiti, conjuring Michael Jackson, or recounting her run-in with a skinhead on a crowded city train, Moïse shares intricate stories of creative resilience, stubborn compassion and death-defying love. Ache What Make invokes brilliant ancestors, current luminaries, and fleeting foes to celebrate a receptive heart in all its chipped or chipper wakefulness.
