Women of Banglatown was founded as a gathering space for women and their children within Banglatown, a predominantly Bangladeshi neighborhood of Detroit. The all-women’s community art space offers free weekly art activities for young girls, lead by local artists and entrepreneurs, and supports Bangladeshi women by providing them with materials for producing traditional artisan products here in Detroit. Harvest baskets created by Rajna are currently being sold at Astro Coffee in Corktown.
WOB are inviting guests to participate in a cultural food experience prepared by Bandhu Gardens, a sister project to Women of Banglatown. Bandhu Gardens recognizes existing gardening and culinary talents of Bangladeshi women living in Detroit and works together with the women to amplify and expand economic opportunities by selling vegetables, catering, and teaching cooking classes.
Funds raised from this event will help Women of Banglatown continue art programing for the upcoming season and work with one mother in the neighborhood to produce block-printed 100% cotton fabric napkins for sale.
