About The Event

One Billion Rising is a global movement, founded by Eve Ensler, to end rape and sexual violence against women. In support of the OBR campaign, Ashé will host a one-day event on Saturday, February 13th from 10 AM to 4 PM that is designed to spark radical self-love in women and those who love and support them. LISTEN, ACT, and RISE is our mantra for 2016. Come join us on February 13 for a day of loving, listening, dancing, massage, story telling, journaling, love letter writing, spoken word, pottery, and learning led by radical women in our community. This is a teach-in, a love-in, and a day of healing and affirmation. We welcome all to join us. We will also be marching in the Femme Fatale parade on January 31st and carrying the One Billion Rising banner. If you would like to join the fun, let us know. (504) 569-9070

About The Organization

Ashé Cultural Arts Center

At Ashé our mission is to use art and culture to support human, community and economic development. We are an an initiative of Efforts of Grace, Inc., a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3), organization that creates and supports programs, activities, and creative works emphasizing the contributions of people of African descent. Located in Central City, the Center provides opportunities for art presentations, community development, artist support, and the creation of partnerships that amplify outreach and support efforts.

During post-hurricane Katrina recovery, we have acted as a community based center for the activities of ReBuild New Orleans, and have taken a leadership role in implementing the strategy to repopulate the Central City neighborhood with its former residents and new like-minded neighbors.

We house a repertoire of original theater works that are available for touring, and provide sponsorship for many private, public, community-focused, and family oriented events.
