    Be inspired to explore history, dance and activism with a special workshop by Kriyol Dance! Collective at Brooklyn’s historic Wyckoff House.

    A dancer from the arts collective will be leading a movement workshop for all ages this weekend on the grounds surrounding the farmhouse. The free workshop is part of the museum’s project, “Protest Garden: Historical Resistance and Radical Cultivation in Brooklyn.”

    Launched this summer, the project invites local artists to explore the house and garden and bring their own sense of art, social justice and activism to visitors. Workshops, performances and a “self-care garden” will be presented over the course of six months.

    The next Kriyol Dance! Collective workshop takes place on Saturday, July 20 from 2 to 3 p.m. at Wyckoff House at 5816 Clarendon Road. The workshop is free and one of several events happening at the farmhouse that day. For full details visit the Wyckoff event page here.
