What is #POWERFEST?
#POWERFEST is a free to attend event that is made for community members, by members in the community. It is an event for families and neighbors to come together and join the environmental justice movement by being part of co-creating a new story.
How does that happen? We’re weaving a new story through art, movement, and the sharing of wisdom and opportunities so that we may heal, play, and be in better relation to one another and the land that we’re on!
This is a grassroots’ organized event being hosted at North Commons Park, with the intention of bringing North Minneapolis community members and organizations together to connect, ground, celebrate, learn, and claim our collective power, all while getting connected with renewable energy and movement resources through the lens of climate justice.
Here’s what you can expect to see at #PowerFest2021:
