Mar 8: Songs in Your Body On This Land @ Northrup King Bldg

We'd like to welcome People of the Global Majority (Black, Brown, Indigenous, People of Color, and Mixed Race) to these song circles.

When: Friday, March 8, 6-8 p.m.
Where: Studio #240***, Northrup King Building, 1500 Jackson St. NE, Minneapolis (map)
Facebook event link

Led by GOOD TROUBLE, Conie Borchardt and Liz Digitale Anderson. We teach songs for joy, courage, grief, hope, and justice in the oral tradition, call and echo. You don't need to "be a singer" or "know what you're doing", you just gotta be willing to breathe and open your mouth and echo back. Maybe even move your hips if you're feeling it

**We will be requesting that folx mask up for the sake of collective community health indoors. Thank you for understanding**

*** This is a shoe-free dance studio. There will be shoe coverings for those who need them.

** There will be chairs available but if you prefer sitting on the floor, you might want to bring a pillow or bolster or whatever makes you more comfortable!

***This is an accessible location.*** 
For those new to the Northrup King Building, it is a huge former seed warehouse, so you may want to take extra time to find us. Here's some navigational tips (and rest in the fact we'll have Good Trouble signs posted to help you find your way!): 

If you need to use the elevator,
  1. Park at northern end
  2. The ramp is between dock 8 and 9
  3. Enter Door F (between dock 5 and 6)
  4. Once inside, the elevator is around the corner to the left (an old industrial one is ahead of you; a modern one is behind you)
  5. On the 2nd floor, turn left off the elevator and go straight a ways.
  6. When you get to a corner, turn left (it's the only way).
  7. Then follow the descending room numbers until you get to 240!
Wanna take the stairs? 
  • There's a few entrances you can pick from. Floor maps are abundant inside. If you take the main entrance (with the awning), you can pickup the directions from step 5 above once you're on the second floor, i.e., turn left once you get to the main long hallway.
Can do some steps but not all the stairs?  Or want a more direct experience?
1. Enter Door D (just beyond PF Cafe, in the loading dock area)
2A. Climb stairs to 3rd floor OR
2B. Go through stairwell into hallway. Turn right at intersection. Freight elevator is there. **If you need someone to open and close the heavy freight gates, let us know ahead of time and we'll have someone available to help! When you get off the elevator, turn left.
3. On the 3rd floor, when you arrive at a intersecting hallway, turn left.
4. Studio 331 will be straight ahead.
