Supporting & sustaining each other in the pursuit of liberation & dignity for all

Nda Ku Ona (I see U): From Fear to Promise!

A weekend of InterPlay hosted by Atlanta InterPlay led by Coke Tani & Masankho Banda
Masankho Banda and Coke Tani

Atlanta, GA

Friday, June 3, 7-9 pm; Saturday, June 4, 10 am-8 pm, Sunday, June 5, 1-4 pm

As we awaken to our shared, death-dealing legacies of racism, Islamophobia, and anti-immigrant xenophobia, how can we be supported and sustained in our collective pursuit of liberation and dignity for all?

How can we open ourselves to the truths of our power-laden separations, while also remaining open to social and spiritual medicines we bring with us into this world when we are born?

InterPlay is a multi-disciplinary, liberating system of creative tools that invite us to bring our whole selves to this vital conversation. Using accessible, guided forms of movement, sound, story, stillness and connection—all part of our “birthright”—we not only find new ways to live with information we already have, we also discover wisdom about collective liberation that could not be realized through simply thinking or talking about it.

Coke Tani and Masankho Banda have traveled this journey of revelation of hope through many communities. Their insights revealed through the lens of InterPlay will inform, transform and create a strong platform for a future of promise.

Coke will also be leading a day-long workshop called InterPlay Day of Love and Self-Care for People of Color on Friday, June 3 from 10 am to 5 pm. If you are a POC signed up for Nda Ku Ona, you can come to this free of charge.

Cost: $200 if registered and paid before April 22. $250 between 4/22 & 6/3
