Reclaim the Beats 2017

The spirit of sound is ancient and precious. The plight of music genres are parallel to historic indigenous societies whose glorious treasures were plundered by foreign conquerors. Colonization, supremacy and capitalism have continued to capture and use our cultures to its awe, entertainment and profit. Reclaim the Beats Festival 2017 performs a restoration for precious gems created by people of color and queers in music.

Reclaim the Beats is a festival with a focus on music genres created by black, POC and queer people that have been heavily gentrified in media over several years. These genres are House, Techno, Rock & HipHop. Spanning over 2 weeks, it features a series of more than 5 events including concerts, dance parties, workshops and panels. The 2nd edition in October 2017 will continue to pay tribute and to highlight modern artists in music genres that were started by people of color and queer talents.

Body_Mary aka Maria González Leal#reclaimingyourqueerfatbpocbody: This workshop will be all about empowerment, desirability and reclaiming bodies of fat queer black people and people of color. We want to show you that you are not alone with your struggle being queer fat bpoc and more important that being fat queer bpoc is awesome. We want to show some strategies to reclaim your beauty and body standards. We want to connect each other and have a great time with you.
