Self Care = Resistance: Healing Sights & Sounds (improvised music-making and art-making)


Self Care = Resistance: Healing Sights & Sounds
Saturday, September 14, 6:00-8:00PM

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” - Audre Lorde

'Self Care' supports community health by providing a safe space for collective expression.

This month please welcome Naimah Thomas, a Chicago based multi-disciplinary artist, art therapist, and Licensed Professional Counselor. Naimah is currently one of three cohort artists selected for Build Coffee’s Meal-Based Residency Program. Naimah hopes to create community-engaged art, which focuses on the intersections of visual art and mental health.

She will showcase her practice, lead us in a workshop that will then flow into an open draw or jam session guided by Julian Otis and Angel Bat Dawid!
