Dance for safety and belonging! Don't You Feel It Too? is grateful to be a part of the AYEEYO MURAL, MOVEMENT, AND STORYTELLING PROJECT on East Lake Street!
"Ayeeyo" means grandmother in Somali.
This project is to create a child-centered experience of belonging and safety on Lake Street around Ayeeyo Childcare Center and the surrounding blocks. We are saying YES to love and belonging and NO to racism and Islamophobia. We are working together with storytellers, visual artists, puppet theater performers, and others to increase the internal and external experience of safety. We will have DYFIT dancing on all these days:
