The Black lesbian and queer community is thriving in DC! We've got everyone from energetically thoughtful barbers to trauma informed yogis to environmentally innovative business owners. We want to celebrate them with this inaugural event of its kind.
Saturday, November 23, 2019 from 2-5pm at House of Butter- 126 Rhode Island Ave. NW, DC. Captain Planet, the event, presents the combined powers of five DC-based "planeteers" offering tactics to clean our environment inside and out. Music, laughter, yoga, art, headspace clearing, sacred foods, and creative recycling are all summoned in this communal healing event honoring the Divine feminine/queer/Blaq/transcendent spiritual warriors who are gonna take pollution down to zero. Together, our potential is limitless, BUT space on this ship IS limited. Reserve yours by sending $5-25 through Cashapp or Venmo to @gardenconcert for Captain Planet + your name(s) in the note.
@SwapDC - the creative recycling event that supports a trade economy. For SwapDC at Captain Planet, bring ONE Winter clothing item in good condition and swap it for another! @Whativefoundsofar author and barber gives us a glimpse of @her.work with the clippers on a crown, and a reading from her new book, What I've Found So Far. @hypofeminine comedienne/singer-songwriter Ixchel breaks us out in laughter and delight with her one-woman act and social commentary. @millionmatsdc is quickly becoming a force in traditional medicine alternatives in DC schools, bringing yoga, breathing exercises, and mindfulness to the next generation, and to us. @gardenconcertseries merges the work of the small farmers who feed us, the culinary art that makes food nourishing, and the thoughtful storytelling of Black & Brown musicians.
Special guests aboard: @eatforbeautydc @blackaboutchocolate @thesilvermountain @note2selfinc and YOU*!. *This event is F.U.B.U. - for us by us - people of the global majority/Black and Brown folx/poc, and is femme, trans, galactic, and queer affirmative.* Together, our potential is limitless, BUT space on this ship is limited.
