Title: Get Free Friday
Date & Time: NEW DATE! Monday, October 2, 2023 7-9PM
Join BAC Fall Multidisciplinary Residents Nikomeh Anderson and Melissa Ferrer Civil for their FREE Community Program: Get Free Friday!
Gather round the fire pit, find your inner freedom in community through the magic of words, conversations, music, and sharing. The spirit of collaboration and ecstatic joy is what has always connected humans in circles around the fire. We hope you join us in our circle to heal, give voice to express yourself, dance, share poetry, and listen to each other. Share space to return deeper into ourselves, our ancestors and descendants, and live liberation through our intentional relating.
Registration encouraged, walk-ins welcome!

This event is a Fall Multidisciplinary Residency Community Program. As part of a residency at BAC, we ask each artist to build and facilitate a Community Program. Community Programs are a unique opportunity for both artists-in-residence and our local community to gather, engage, and be in conversation with one another through art. Community Programs are free engagements open to the public and/or in collaboration with a local community partner.
