HAFH is an experimental art installation and festival featuring artists from the Ethiopian and Eritrean communities of the Bay Area, culminating in a week-long art happening Sept 7-13 and FINALE FESTIVAL DAY Sept 14th, 2014. Meklit is the lead artist for HAFH and assembled a team of East African artists to coordinate the project. The festival is centered around this year's Eritrean and Ethiopian New Year (Sept 11, 2014). We are building a traditional home that will function as a popup gallery for visual arts and performance. We are a project of YBCA-In-Community, and generously funded by the James Irvine Foundation.

  • BRAIDING AS SCULPTURE COMPETITION:
    • 1 to 6 PM. The Braiding As Sculpture competition recognizes that braiding is a three dimensional art which maps ideas of geometry, design aesthetics and beauty on to the pallet of the body. Through bringing the often informal act of braiding to a "live" context, we transform it into performance and installation happening in real time.
