Event Description: A solidarity celebration on behalf of the brave resistance of the Sudanese people. Calling for a madaniya (civilian) led government through a peaceful sit-in at the military headquarters, the resistance was rich with the presence of art, music and flourishing creativity. A violent massacre at the hands of the Transitional Military Council and their Rapid Support Forces intended to instill fear, instead renewed the momentum of the movement. Sudan, still in mourning and riddled with tumult, yet energized and passionate, enters a sensitive transitional period where the support of medical professionals is still desperately needed for those on the frontlines. In New York City, a reconstruction of the sit-in will honor the lives lost and celebrate the new Sudan, bringing together some of the most esteemed Sudanese musicians, poets, and mixed-media artists in a moment of unification and healing.
