Penn Museum Hosts An Evening to Imagine Africa Oct 26

Neighbors, friends, and first time visitors are invited to celebrate, explore, and enjoy at the Penn Museum Wednesday, October 26, 5:30 to 7:30 pm, at An Evening to Imagine Africa, a FREE community night. There will be workshops to shake things up—a Hip Hop dance workshop with an instructor from Rennie Harris RHAW, an African Dance Workshop with the Penn student group African Rhythms, plus belly dancing with Habiba, and Spoken Word with the Philly Youth Poetry Movement.

An Evening to Imagine Africa is the first of three free Wednesday evening community nights; additional nights run March 28 and May 23, 2012.

An Evening to Imagine Africa is one of a host of special programs around the Penn Museum’s innovative new 12-month gallery project, Imagine Africa with the Penn Museum, where visitors’ ideas and perspectives on Africa are being sought, to influence plans for a future renovation of the African gallery. Information about the gallery project and programming is online at
