Fusion Rebellion

July 7, 2019, 3 p.m.

Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University

Come celebrate life, regeneration, and the miraculous, precious earth that is our shared home on SUNDAY JULY 7th, 2019! 🌈🌸🌎 Exact location will be at the "Bradley Rosaceous Collection”, a 6 minute walk from the Forest Hills T station on the Orange Line.

(*Note: Rain date will be Saturday July 20th, 2019).

In line with the inclusive and prosocial values of WFF, this will be a special environmental fund-and-awareness-raising event co-hosted with the MA chapter of Extinction Rebellion.

As with all WFF events, this will be open and FREE for all, and, we will have a donation jar to collect suggested $5-$25 donations for XR.

SCHEDULE:

  • 3-4 PM: All-levels nature-themed dance movement workshop for activists facilitated by Kaiyue Chen, a dance movement therapist and fusion dancer. No previous dance experience required. This workshop will be capped at 15 attendees, so please RSVP on Eventbrite if you plan to come.

  • 4-5 PM: Beginner-friendly partner dance lesson led by David Zou

  • 5-6 PM: Open social! Music, dancing, food, flower-gazing, chalk-drawing, and general hanging out

  • 6-6:10 PM: Brief talk by XR + dance announcements

  • 6:10-7 PM: More open social.

This will be a new-to-fusion-friendly event, and the opportunity you've been waiting for to bring your non-dancing friends to hang out and see what WFF and XR are all about 😄.

In addition to music and dancing, we encourage people to bring veggie-friendly snacks and drinks to share. We will also have sidewalk chalk for people to co-create community art in response to prompts like "What do you love about nature?" and "What are you grateful for?", and blankets where people can hang out and flower-gaze between dances 🌷🌱.

David Zou and Teresa Yeh will each DJ a set.
