Alternate Roots

Girls Rock Charleston is participating in the Alternate Roots Tour on Wednesday, October 22nd during the Alliance for Artist Communities Conference in Charleston SC. ROOTS leaders are presenting a tour of community-activated spaces in Charleston.

Alternate ROOTS connects a diverse network of artists and activists throughout the South, working for social and economic justice through arts. Join ROOTS leaders for a tour of community-activated spaces in Charleston. Discover the Denmark Vesey site, a controversial and important public homage 18 years in the making; explore Charleston’s newest square for participatory art at Burke Middle High School (the first African American trade school in the city); and catch performances by ROOTS affiliates including Girls Rock, New Danger HipHop Poetry Group, and African Drums. The tour concludes at the studio of artists Jean-Marie Mauclet and Gwylene Gallimard for a reception and discussion of new local and international collaborations.
