The Caribbean Cultural Center / African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) in New York presents Trade/itions: Trans-Atlantic Orisha Sacred Traditions, which will take place on Saturday, February 27, 2016 (1:00pm – 8:30pm) and Sunday, February 28, 2016 (1:00pm – 6:30pm) at City College Center for the Arts (located at 160 Convent Avenue, New York).
Trade/itions is a two-day symposium event which will explore the points of Orisha intersections through an artistic, activist, and 21st century lens. The global Yoruba-based spiritual practices that migrated to the Americas from Africa via the transatlantic slave trade serve as the foundation for this two-day gathering. Principal demonstrations and social impacts of these traditions will be shown – through music, dance, panel-dialogue sessions, and through the moving image, along with how these practices have adapted, survived, and transformed in the western hemisphere. Programs and activities have been carefully curated to include expressions of various regions representative of the Orisha tradition of the Americas: Cuba, Haiti, Brazil, Trinidad, and the United States.
Activities will take place at City College Center for the Arts (CCCA) – City College of New York. [Phone: (212) 650-6900.]
