About The Event

Join us in Flagstaff as we celebrate the beauty and sovereignty of women worldwide in solidarity with our sister city of Itombwe, DRC and the Maman Shujaa Hero Women of Congo! We will gather at noon on Heritage Square for a procession led by Sambatuque and African drummers, followed by an energizing community performance of Break the Chain and an open mic event. Last year our flashmob was attended by the mayor of Flagstaff, youth and women survivors of domestic and sexual violence, children, men, and many members of our artistic and performing arts community. Bring a poster and an instrument. Wear a costume if you wish. We welcome spoken word, original music and short performances at our open mic. 1BR Flagstaff style! This flashmob will be followed by a Love Advice Panel of local Sexperts at the Green Room. Come hear a variety of expert opinions on your anonymous (or not) love question! The Hungry Hearts Cabaret follows immediately after, a variety show that celebrates the good, bad and ugly of V-Day through aerial arts, spoken word, live music, bellydance, burlesque, and more. Saturday's show is at 8 pm at Sunday's show is at 5 pm.
