Last Friday, we hosted Do My Ladies Run This?, a show put together by our youth drop-in centre Jeunesse 2000 every summer. A series of young, local artists captivated the crowd at Shaïka Café with delightful performances.
Do My Ladies Run This? is an all-female lineup of performances with the purpose of providing female-identified artists with a space to perform in a warm and supportive environment; a space that is usually lacking in an often male-dominated industry.
Some of the artists were performing for the first time while others were already somewhat established in the community. The lineup was quite diverse, ranging from blues and folk to spoken word and hip-hop.
Do My Ladies Run This? was definitely an exciting kick-off for Head & Hands’ summer events, raising over $500 for J2K! Coming up next: SERVE 2014! on July 27th at Parc Jeanne-Mance followed by the Community Carnival and Samedi in the Park! Don’t miss out on our summer-load of fun events!
