Join Brazilian-born artist Thaís Muniz for a workshop exploring the history of head wraps and turbans in Brazil and the broader Afro-Atlantic diaspora. Blending African and Brazilian turban styles, Muniz seeks to illustrate their cultural significance through tutorials, workshops, and documentaries.
