Doñas To The Front: Women’s Workshop

March 28 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| RSVP
Doñas To The Front Flyer blue

Vulgar Colors is celebrating the powerful and inspirational impacts women endure by coordinating Donas To The Front, a function for young girls and women to participate in an evening of physical and mental treatment. DTTF is a play off of Kathleen Hanna, Riot Girl and Bikini Kill’s feminist movement in the early 90s. While punk rock shows tend to promote exciting behavior, Hanna and her band would call all women to the front of the stage during their performances for safety precautions.

DTTF offers one free session of physical and mental exercise through strength and conditioning, yoga, and hip hop with modern dance segments. Encouragement in entrepreneurship skills will be provided as four pop-up shops will have the opportunity to share their stories, as well as sell merchandise; this includes the works of two visual artists. Three musicians and a poet will provide instrumentation and spoken word throughout the workshop. Proceeds made at the concession stand go to The Storming Steppers squad of New Voices Middle School.
