Afro-Brazilian Turbans & Head Wraps Workshop - London

Brixton Come Together Festival 2018 presents the Afro-Brazilian Turbans & Head Wraps Workshop by Thaís Muniz from Turbante.se project.

Going beyond the ways of tying proper African inspired head wraps and turbans, this workshop brings you closer to the history of this symbol on the post colonial context for the Afro Diasporas. 

Starting with a short lecture, Thaís Muniz share her research about the complex history of the turbans and head wraps from the Afro-Brazilian culture to the Afro-Atlantic diaspora, from ancient to contemporary times. The Yoruba culture, the Candomblé religion, the Orishas and the Baianas are the starting point to highlight the meanings of the head wrap and turbans in different contexts. 

Discussing about aesthetics, politics, art and empowerment, you will discover many characters who has been composing this legacy and the practical ways of tying more than 10 models of head wraps and turbans. Subscriptions cost £10 or £20 with a head wrap included. Special discount for Brixton residents. Send us an e-mail at turbante.se@gmail.com ♥ 
Limited places.

Turbante-se is a Brazilian-Portuguese neologism that means Turban Yourself.

In the opportunity we will be launching the Kushe Salone collection where all the scarfs was collected and made in Freetown, Sierra Leone, and this finest selection will be available to purchase in our Head Wrap Bar.

Gandaia Arts presents the Afro-Brazilian Head Wraps Workshop by Thaís Muniz from Turbante.se project.

This workshop starts with a short lecture where Thaís Muniz explores the complex history of the turbans and head wraps in the Afro-Brazilian culture, expanding to the Afro-Atlantic diaspora, from ancient to contemporary times. The Yoruba culture, the Candomblé religion, the Orishas and the Baianas are our starting point to highlight the meanings of the head wrap as a symbol, and discussing about aesthetics, politics, or art and empowerment. You will discover many characters and the practical ways of tying more than 10 models of head wraps. Turbante-se is a Brazilian-Portuguese neologism that means Turban Yourself.

Thaís Muniz founded the Turbante-se project on 2012 and in the last 6 years she has been carrying out research that has connected the history, meanings and the re-signification of head wraps in the Afro-Atlantic diaspora. Reflecting on the social function of the turban's non-verbal communication, its innumerable forms of use and meanings in different cultural contexts; and its place in political activism, Thaís reflects on racism, cultural appropriation and the importance of turban-wearing in contemporary urban culture. Through Turbante-se platform she tells and record stories, generates contents, and inspires the daily use through workshops, tutorials, artistic performances and experiments in art and design.
