MORE Versadas – Oral traditions that heal

November 20, 2021, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm PST

""

Virtual event community to celebrate our oral traditions as a tool for healing and promotion. In this event we seek to merge art and health promotion, while centering the voices of artists as the axis to share messages about the importance of vaccination and to raise awareness and educate the Afro-Latino community about our traditions.

We will have artists from Venezuela, Panama, Mexico and Puerto Rico, sharing verses and tenths from their oral traditions, as well includes an interactive mini-workshop, where participants will be able to practice collective creation with the guidance of an artist (in rooms for small groups) of verses, quatrains, couplets, seguidillas, related to COVID19, Mental Health and the Importance of Vaccines.

Sponsors:

  • MÁS – Movimiento Afrolatino Seattle
