The Night of Cultural Resistance (NoCR) is the culminating event of our Week of Cultural Resistance (WoCR) which is scheduled for 03/10/13-03/14/13. Every year NoCR features live performances, art making, food, and various other activities to celebrate our resilience and honor the ways in which communities of color continue to resist and flourish within the university. NoCR is more than a concert or a show, it is an opportunity for communities on and off campus to come together and share stories, skills and resources. We are excited to be holding NoCR on Memorial Glade this year in order to increase visibility and access!!
This year’s theme is ROOT Y(OUR) FUTURE! The theme is inspired by the 45th Anniversary of the first twLF strike at UC Berkeley. We invite folks to not just remember twLF but to also continue living by, and creating with, the goals and values that fed the movement at the time.
Community Building Activities:
With the values of rootedness, resiliency, creativity, and survival we have created community building activities which allow folks to engage in embodying these movements. Come enjoy silk screening, seed planting, pot decorating, collective knowledge building, and selfieLove for a night filled with beautiful energies.
