Sunday 29th January 2017

FunkyNChunky are excited to be at Hair Today, Here Tomorrow.  This is a celebration of groups and individuals who are creating their own structures without the help of institutions.
We are coming together to discuss, share and care for each other in our intersecting black communities. There will be workshops, arts and crafts made by independent designers and an open talk at the beginning of the day around the chosen theme of Imposter Syndrome.

Imposter Syndrome, is the feeling of inadequacy of your personal achievements or goals despite the contrary. It can manifest by you talking yourself out of opportunities, talking yourself down, comparing yourself to others and it goes on. This discussion is how we can create positive obstacles for ourselves an...d believe that the future us, is actually us right now.

I Am Somebody by Madeline Anderson 30 min.

A documentary record of the 113-day strike by members of the National Union of Hospital and Nursing Home Employees in Charleston, South Carolina during the Spring of 1969. Explores the struggles of these low-paid, Black, and mostly female hospital workers to achieve economic justice, dignity and self-respect.

Perfect Image? by Maureen Blackwood 30 min.

Bright and imaginative in its approach to its subject, PERFECT IMAGE? exposes stereotypical images of Black women and explores women's own ideas of self worth. Using two actresses who constantly change their personae, the film poses questions about how Black women see themselves and each other and the pitfalls that await those who internalize the search for the "perfect image"!
