Redmoon and its collaborators will be leading free workshops for community members. In these workshops, community members will be invited to learn the art of spoken word, drumming, and key elements of public performance in an effort to create authentic, unexpected urban celebrations. The Bucket Boys, a six person drum troupe composed of talented teenagers from the South Side, will lead community members in their unique style of drumming. The Young Chicago Authors, an organization which offers education and scholarships for young Chicagoans interested in creative writing, will have several representatives present to lead the community in expression through spoken word. Following the workshops, the participants and any other interested community members will be invited to join Redmoon and its collaborators to create a 30-40 minute spectacle and parade in the public park.
