Head to Seneca Village on Juneteenth weekend for a family-friendly celebration of Black wellness through dance, music, art-making, comedy, self-care, and more!
Seneca Village provides a compelling setting to explore the widespread and longstanding connections Black New Yorkers have with wellness and nature. This Juneteenth weekend, we invite you to celebrate these traditions with us in Seneca Village’s landscape as we tap into the longstanding power of Black wellness practices to rejuvenate our mind, body, and spirit.
Imagine how Seneca Village’s residents might have utilized this very land to cultivate wellbeing though art-making with The Studio Museum in Harlem, Sugar Hill Children’s Museum, and Shanequa Benitez; self-care and movement with Harlem Yoga Studio, Asase Yaa, and Emotions Physical Theatre; contemplative reflection with music from Mother Zion Church and jazz virtuosos IAMKHEMESTRY; and laughter from renowned comedians Seaton Smith, Joyelle Nicole Johnson, and Ethan Simmons-Patterson.
This year’s event is curated by Juneteenth Artistic Director Andromeda Turre. Artwork provided by Daniel Fishel.
