Today kicks off the Black Girl’s Create Community Countdown to Kickback Challenge! (Those that have already registered are one step ahead of the game) Read through the graphics and the Google doc I will drop in the thread for the rules, but they are pretty straight forward: 15 tasks to do between now and October 15th. We’ll do regular checkins and those that do them all, will get a prize! If you choose to play with the Bingo board and some get them all but do get Bingo, you’ll get one as well!
Creativity. Community. Collaboration. Continuous learning. Long ago, the four elements of artistic power lived within us all. Then, everything changed when settler colonialism and capitalism attacked. Only the Avatars, masters of all four artistic elements can heal us all…
Thank you for joining the Black Girl Create Countdown to Kickback community challenge!
Between now and October 15th, the first day of Kuumba Kickback, we challenge you to complete the tasks listed below. These tasks should help you continue creating and cultivating meaningful community as we prepare to learn and kick it together during BNC’s annual digital convention. Community members who complete all the tasks, thus becoming Community Avatars, will receive a special digital background that they can use to rep BNC Community pride in all their digital spaces. They will also, of course, get huge bragging rights until the next challenge event.
