Event Details

WERK is a movement and sound ritual that centers queer people of the global majority (QTIBPOC) and celebrates the music, creativity and people of the African Diaspora. WERK is an intentional space to get down, feel your body, process, come as you are, twerk, roll on the floor, rest and just generally do you… As long as it’s not harming anyone else it’s all welcome.

WERK is inspired by the QTIBPOC communities around the world that have used dance parties and rituals as a means to resist, heal and connect to joy. We build on your legacy. It is a ritual to decolonize. For African heritage people, our communities traditionally used dance and sound rituals to celebrate, connect with ancestors and nourish community bonds. We aim to reimagine and recreate a space to reclaim movement and healing through bass, as our birthright.

WERK is a place to practice embodied solidarity.
