Born in 1960s Washington, DC, Go-Go music has gained local and international acclaim. Now, it is the soundtrack of Black joy and resistance in the area. Join ARTLAB and women-centric creative consulting agency GIRLAAA for a virtual discussion, unpacking the origins of Go-Go and the role women played in its formation and growth in the District and beyond.

ASL interpretation will be provided for this program. If you have any questions about accessibility for this program, please email hirshhornexperience@si.edu.

This program is a part of ARTLAB’s Respect Her Crank! series. The series includes a set of public programs and a final virtual exhibit, celebrating women in Go-Go. ARTLAB is a digital art studio for teens, but this program is open to art- and Go-Go-lovers of all ages.

This project received support from the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative.
