MOFAD @ Night: J’ouvert – Queer Visibility in Food and Culture
J’ouvert, which began as a street party during Carnival in post-emancipation Caribbean, has become an integral part of Caribbean diaspora communities in Brooklyn and beyond. Yardy NYC, RAGGA NYC, and CONNEK have teamed up to bring a slice of J’ouvert to MOFAD, celebrating Afro-Caribbean food and culture at the intersection of tourism, gender, queerness, and the economic landscape of agriculture and cuisine in Jamaica, NYC, and beyond.
The evening will feature food and drinks by Yardy NYC, music curated by the RAGGA NYC, and a panel discussion moderated by food writer Korsha Wilson, featuring DeVonn Francis (Yardy NYC Founder), Christopher Udemezue (RAGGA NYC Founder, CONNEK Co-founder) and Chantel Chaday Emmanuel (CONNEK Co-founder, joining us from Kingston, Jamaica).
This event also celebrates the launch of CONNEK’s April 2020 trip. Attendees hear about the project, how to become a part of CONNEK, and even receive a special MOFAD discount.
Doors open at 6:30 pm. Last call at 8:30 pm. Tickets include admission to the program, 2 drink tickets, and bites provided by Yardy. We cannot accommodate dietary restrictions or allergies.Buy tickets/get more info now
