Join the last planned playgroup of the year featuring the usual interactive play and storytime facilitated by Gina Gold, this time joined by Nkeiruka Oruche. Nkei will lead us on music and movement filled activities, and use that to invite families to share cultures.
Briefly about Nkei:
A Nigerian of Igbo descent, Nkeiruka ‘Nkei’ Oruche is a producer and performer specializing in the expressions of urban culture of the African Diaspora and its intersections with personal identity, public health and sociopolitical action.
Currently, Oruche is focused on expanding and sustaining grassroots change-making and community resiliency through the production, performance and embodiment of art and culture. She is a co-founder of BoomShake, a community organization that uses street drumming as a tool for cultural survival and social justice, and the artistic director of Afro Urban Society, a meeting place for urban African art, culture and people.
