Program Description

Event Details

In celebration of Black History Month, we have invited local artist Renee Michea'l Jones to lead "Roots for Youth," a workshop in African textiles. 

In Roots for Youth, participants explore the traditional culture and history of African textiles as a medium for storytelling. Through mindful exploration, participants consider their personal stories and incorporate their tales into African textile forms such as Dahomey Applique, Nigerian Adire, West African Adinkra, and Senegalese Inking.

Roots for Youth is Sponsored by the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture.
