Drum Power is a drum and dance experience for young people where they can development new skills and explore West African and Afro-Brazilian cultural traditions. Drum Power focuses on three pillars of social-emotional learning: discipline, community and leadership. This musical performance and panel discussion will feature youth performers and presenters focusing on Drum Power as an exploration/expression of personal sovereignty”— the governing of one’s self as personal agency -- the same sovereignty that is the focus of indigenous efforts around land and equity and the politics of place. Students will share what that experience has been for them and instructors will share how that artistic creative space is supported and maintained.
