Outro Weekend: A Joyful Black Manifesto II

Metro54 and Rita Ouédraogo invite you to Outro Weekend: A Joyful Black Manifesto II, the final day of A Funeral for Street Culture, the group project which Framed Framed hosted throughout summer.

What does it mean hold space for each other and street culture? Where is joy located amidst a world that is burning and has been burning for centuries? How does our current mental state influence our spirits, lives and practices? Where do we find beauty and joy? Laughter and meditation? Banter and lyrics? We provide you some humble questions and no promises.

A Joyful Black Manifesto/It’s a Delightful Thing II is an ongoing marathon of performance, lecture, talking through film screening, improv. Concert, digital memes and interventions, conversation, complain fest, mourning and any other type of critical celebratory actions and rituals we might deem necessary to say farewell to this iteration of A Funeral for Street Culture.

A Joyful Black Manifesto/It’s a Delightful Thing II is a gathering that brings together artists, thinkers, players and lovers to hold a wake for street culture. We will listen to the music, mourn street culture and poetry that warms our hearts. We will joke Virgil Abloh and cry about the disappearance of the street as communal, queer and radical joyful, shared and free space. We will meme and remember together.
