‘Hand to Hand Craftworks’ is excited to announce two preview shop events at the Midtown Commerce Center
Developed by artist Gary L. Moore and produced through the Destination Sistrunk Artist in Residency Program, “Hand 2 Hand Craftworks (H2H)”, is a portable Shop selling limited edition, one-of-a-kind home-goods, along with craft and original art works, all created here in Broward County!
On Tuesday, June 20 from 6 – 8 p.m., H2H has invited noted architect and cultural historian Ralph B. Johnson to present a free public lecture entitled, Preserving Florida’s African American History and Culture. The African Diaspora canvases the Florida landscape in its rich cultural traditions, dwellings and sacred places. The preservation of this heritage has been a career-long work in progress.
Several research and historic preservation projects including the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Area Corridor and the North Fork of the New River will be presented to reflect unique yet common cultural threads that formed the early African American tapestry found today in South Florida.
On Wednesday, June 21, from 6-10, the Mid-Town Gospel Cafe is a place to un-wind, chill to live music, good food and an excellent opportunity to network and make new friends …. And of course shop to support local artists and culture.
