The Work: We Take Care of Us (A session on bridging with music by the Alphabet Rockers)

Alphabet Rockers (2020 OBI Artist-in-Residence) reveal how their songwriting process relies on inquiry into the human experience to effect cultural change. This anti-racist work centers children and families, listening to the questions they hold and developing musical responses. The process and products are intergenerational spaces for envisioning, finding joy and building cultural infrastructures of care and understanding.

In this session they’ll focus on three projects that demonstrate how they embrace human experiences (LISTENING), embody community practices (EXPANDING), and use their art to guide others in finding their own bridges (SHARING).
