4:30-7:30 PM
Green Briar Park

We're excited to partner with SummerDance this August. This partnership continues the work SpaceShift has been doing in the West Ridge neighborhood - where Devon avenue shines - with the Aao Mil Baithen project. The community at Green Briar Park is currently and often is in transition, where we have many groups sharing space together and quite powerfully at a public park. Our project with SummerDance is engaging residents who have a range of familiarity with movement expressions; we want to engage our community in many ideas of “home” through nature, music, and dance. We invite everyone to come experience our fun and innovative take on traditional and contemporary South Asian art forms and beyond.
