You can be forgiven for not knowing what that means. I’ve read the flyer and looked at the facebook page, and I still don’t know.
What I do know is that this is what the back of the flyer looks like:
And that the front of the flyer says ‘connect feeling, share expression, awaken life.’ This event is apparently about community, but whose community? At between $55 to $80 for a ticket, with a WHITE AS clientele except for performers (and that one kissy face dude in the corner), I have my suspicions.
From the Trybooking page: WHO COMES: Everyone is invited! From children to grandparents! The main clientele is usually conscious people who want to celebrate their hearts openly in fun and play. And by defacing the heritages and cultures of other peoples, I guess. This event will apparently open with a sacred ceremony (sacred to whom? Cannot wait to see whose culture they indiscriminately mine to contribute to this feeling of transformation).
As always, thank you for including brown people in your event. By paying us to be performers and then abusing our cultures and heritages.

2. The graphic design is about as sophisticated as their understanding of cultural appropriation!
I KNOW RIGHT. So many problems! And they have no idea how offensive it all is!
