Hair is a medium that Black people use to express creativity, to preserve history, and is seen as a symbol of resilience. Created by Hors Pair Social and The Moving Art Gallery, Crépu: Our DNA is an artistic celebration and meditation on Black hair. It is also Ottawa's first ever Black Hair Art Show in which these ideas are explored through photography, film, discussion and performance.
For this year's edition of Crépu: Our DNA, activities will include:
- A live hair care demo
- A hair art runway
- Musical and spoken word performances
- Museum presentation - The innovation and history of Black hair care technology in Canada
- Screening of short film Nid d’oiseau and panel discussion
- Reception and music by DJ Velvet
