This fall Wa Na Wari is taking art to the streets for our 2021 Fall Fundraising Event.
We are creating our own one day art walk pop-up in the Central District and it's called “Walk the Block”. “Walk the Block” transforms homes, businesses, parks and other common spaces in our neighborhood into street viewable art installations and performance sites. Enjoy art, video installations, live music and more as you stroll the neighborhood with family and friends. All while helping to raise funds and build community with Wa Na Wari.
All participants are required to wear a mask at the event. Participants can arrive and begin the walk anytime between 3pm and 5pm. This will allow participants to stay socially distanced throughout the walk. Dress warm and wear comfortable shoes.

ABOUT WA NA WARI:
Sited in a fifth-generation, Black-owned home, Wa Na Wari is an immersive community art project that reclaims Black cultural space and makes a statement about the importance of Black land ownership in gentrified communities. Our mission is to create space for Black ownership, possibility, and belonging through art, historic preservation, and connection. Referred to as a "container for Black joy,” Wa Na Wari incubates and amplifies Black art and belonging while providing a safe space for organizing and movement building. By renting a house from a vulnerable Black homeowner, and giving that space back to the Black community, Wa Na Wari is an active model for how Black art and culture can combat gentrification and displacement.
