REFUGE

As we still find ourselves in the current shared reality of uncertainty and upheaval, it is necessary to center our intentions on amplifying the healing aspects of our work — all of our Work. Refuge is an event series at Bartram’s Garden, curated by noted Philly Area DJ, DuiJi 13. The positive healing energy generated as we come together to share music and fellowship is always a noted side effect of our gatherings.

Our Juneteenth/Father’s Day weekend event will be enhanced with live painting by Anthony Molden, storytelling by griots from Keepers of the Culture, and the singular poetic presence of Ursula Rucker. We hope the coalescence of these artists will align with the sounds provided by DuiJi 13 and Supa Tang to provide a valuable holistic experience. We all need space and time to replenish ourselves in safety and sanity. We hope Refuge will serve this purpose.
