Women’s Initiative for Self Empowerment will host the third annual Cultural Art Imbizo!

This event is based on the rich Zulu “Imbizo” tradition of communities coming together  to celebrate friendship, soul & spirit. Immigrant and refugee girls who were a part of the GGAL Summer Arts Program will be displaying their work along with local cultural artists who can exhibit and sell their work or perform for the members of the Twin Cities community.

There will be fun games, local ethnic food, music, resource booths from local community organizations, and a silent auction. The proceeds from the Imbizo will help to support GGAL’s Summer Arts Program, where underrepresented immigrant and refugee girls in high school have the opportunity to learn about the fundamentals of art. There will be dance performances from Titambe West African Drum & Dance Ensemble and dancers from the American Oromo Community of Minnesota & Karen Organization of Minnesota.
