SOUSOU SATURDAYS
SOUSOU! SATURDAYS

Join us for our new season of SouSou! Saturdays. Enjoy fun art-making, dance, or music workshops, and much more! Our SouSou! Saturdays program is inspired by the cooperative economic practice known throughout the African Diaspora by such names as "Colecta", "Box Hand", "San", "Partna", or "Sou-Sou".  We've borrowed from, and transformed this long-standing practice of collective trust, and contribution into a "cultural SouSou" for the community. (Activities appropriate for children ages 4 -12)
