This workshop will guide participants through art-making activities that speculate a migration route of el bamboulá, a dance and music style, originally from Africa, that can be found in the Dominican Republic and forms part of the originating history of Congo Square in New Orleans. Using a selection of archival material gathered by Cruz, participants will draw their own conclusions about the route of el bamboulá and create a collage that will become a page in a collective zine. 

This workshop is free and open to the public, with no experience necessary. Registration is required and capacity is limited. 

For ages 12 and up.
