CamP Harambee Spotlight
Harambee Sports Club is pleased to collaborate with studio in/visible - they will be spinning vinyl and coordinating our Harambee community art project on Wednesday, July 21, 2021.
Join studio in/visible for a celebration of music, people, self-expression and soccer fun, Harambee style. Stop by, share a song, bust a move, smile and make some art with us.
studio in/visible is a moveable outdoor studio space created by Jacques and Carmen, local artists and educators. We are an art invitation for all. We curate, doodle, support, play, heal through art and connect deeply with nature.
Harambee! Let's keep moving our neighborhood together.
