Sisterhood and Whiteness programs
A collective that wants to stand out from the existing crews by the black women consciousness dance side. The collective is part of a larger program which aims to create a network of Afrodescendant sisters across Belgium, Jamaica and Angola.
The goal is to stimulate mutual learning, in a dynamic of empowerwent in order to contribute to a change of attitude, to produce a common reflection on the African heritage and Dancehall. In this way , they would be able to express themsleves through art and wear their voices internationally
This program questions the positionality of white people in regards to afro-Caribbean cultures, afro-Caribbean and afrodescendant artists. This program will address this question in connection with broader issues such as colonial legacy, white privilege and whiteness.
To do so, we offer a wide range of workshops that will tackle specific issues (such as cultural appropriation, white feminism, etc.) in order to allow participants to progressively build their reflexion.
The goal is to stimulate mutual learning, by enhancing a collective dynamic of deconstruction of stereotypes and whiteness, in order to contribute to a change of attitude and to embrace afro-Caribbean culture as they deserve.
