Black Future Festival

The Brooklyn Children’s Museum is hosting a weeklong “Black Future Festival” during the Department of Education’s midwinter school recess to celebrate Black History Month. In partnership with Bedford-Stuyvesant based non-profit organization STooPS and guest curator, dancer and community organizer Kendra J. Bostock, museum visitors will be able to participate in a series of programming from Feb. 18 through Feb. 25 — including live performances, art exploration, storytelling, dance workshops and more. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the relationship art and artistic expression has played on Black-led social movements throughout Brooklyn’s history via the festival’s 11 various programs. 

The programs include a multidisciplinary dance performance which explores the significance of everyday items in relation to Black histories, present experiences and Afro-futurism and will be performed by Bostock and dancers Brittany Grier, J’Nae Simmons and Kimani Fowlin. Other festival programs include a storytelling session in which guests will listen to stories of Bed-Stuy led by poet and performance artist Wema Ragophala and a plant allyship workshop led by alchemist Renee K. Smith designed to encourage children to be curious about their natural surroundings. Festival programs will run twice a day so visitors will have the opportunity to engage in as many as possible.

Date: February 18th-February 25th
