ROOTS Weekend: Jacksonville brought together artists and cultural workers, organizers and activists to engage in deep dialogue, make and witness art, and learn from one another. It was condensed version of ROOTS Week, their signature gathering. They brought artists, organizers, and cultural workers together to share ideas and inspiration through performance, visual art, workshops, dialogues, and good conversations.

In addition to the programming, Erin Kendrick’s new exhibit, “Oh, Snap” at Riverside Fine Arts also took place that same weekend, where we relocated to end the first night of the workshops.

ROOTS Weekends deepen our collective understanding of the work of social change by celebrating artists and organizers who are working within communities to develop creative solutions to long-standing issues.
