Dear Cumbe Family,

It’s happening! Cumbe will start classes at RestorationART, our new home, in mid-September.

We are deeply thankful for Gibney’s warm welcome of Cumbe while we searched for a new home and are buoyed by their strong support as we move to RestorationART at Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation.

Our regular classes at Gibney will end on August 13.  However, we’re excited to let you know that our partnership with Gibney will continue:  Lamine Thiam’s West African class will continue on Tuesday evenings – without interruption!  In addition, Cumbe will offer occasional workshops and a monthly African/Diaspora workshop series on the 3rd Sunday of every month, featuring a rotation of Cumbe teachers and guest artists.
