TRADE/ITIONS | Honoring African Spiritual Traditions!

Aaron Davis Hall
160 Convent Avenue New York, Ny 10031
TRADE/ITIONS

On Saturday, September 23rd, 2017, we will channel our ancestors, using celebration as a tool of liberation through the annual Trade/itions. The multimedia event will explore contemporary manifestations of the African Spiritual traditions that enslaved Africans brought to the west during the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Using the lenses of gender, culture, commerce and technology, Trade/itions will offer a collaborative space for spiritual growth and community development. 

Presented by the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), in partnership with Aaron Davis Hall of the City University of New York, Trade/itions will feature panel discussions, film screenings, children art villages, from traditional spiritual leaders, activists, artists, experts, community organizers and a special hurricane relief concert featuring Navasha Daya, and Oshun. ​

Panels: Lemonade and Iron, Web Worship, Transacting Tradition, Human Rights in Human Rites, Rhythm Ascensions.
