You may remember Rhythms of Resistance Toronto’s women-identified contingent at Hamilton’s Take Back the Night hitting the streets, marching, making noise, dancing and creating amazing music to rise up to.
Rhythms of Resistance Toronto loves Hamilton so much that they want to come back, but this time with the rest of the band and a new mission!
You may know RoR from performance, all decked-out in tutus, glitter and combat boots, but that’s only a piece of who they are and what they do. The other sides of Rhythms of Resistance, as musicians and activists, includes community engagement and organizing projects, workshops, skill sharing, potlucks and parties, supporting and challenging ourselves and each other as we try and live our vision and affect change…and so much more.
They want to share all this with you!
With support from SACHA – Sexual Assault Centre (Hamilton & Area) and to recognize Sexual Violence Awareness Month, RoR is coming to Hamilton once again to pass on our collective drumming skills, to pass on the knowledge and know-how (based on their own experiences) of creating affinity using music for social change, and rooting your practice in an anti-oppression framework.
Who knows? This could be the start of RoR Hamilton!
This is an open invitation. All genders and abilities welcome.
To make the workshop a success RoR needs your help collecting wine bottles, plastic food containers, drum sticks, wooden spoons, plastic water-cooler jugs, large buckets and whistles for the workshop.
Registration is sliding scale – $10-$30. All the funds will go towards the travel costs of the facilitators with any extra funds raised going to support SACHA’s amazing programs supporting survivors of sexual assault and abuse. Please pay what you can afford.
There are free spots available for folks who cannot afford to pay to register. Please contact Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905.525.4573 to reserve a free spot at this workshop.
