Taking Over SXSW… Curly Girl Picnic
Austin, TX –March 17, 2018 – The Co Report will host their first ever-natural hair picnic during SXSW at Huston Tillotson, a Historical Black College & University, from 9 am – 5 pm. This event will feature a majority of Black-owned brands in cosmetics, natural hair care, skin care, and various other goods and services. The Curly Girl Picnic is expected to host over 1500 interested women.
“There are many women of color, myself included, who have attended SXSW and have felt culturally left out due to the lack of genuine representation as well as the lack of meaningful discussions, gatherings, and events that are specific to people of color. The Curly Girl Picnic is our save haven – Coco Bates, Content Creator for The Co Report
This will be an opportunity for women with kinky, curly, and coily tresses that will be in the Austin area during SXSW to come together in a positive environment to network with one another, learn new techniques in natural hair, beauty, and skincare. There will be live discussions that will pertain to self-love, natural hair, skincare, entrepreneurship, traveling abroad, and dating/relationships. Attendees will be allowed to interact as well as ask questions to the panelist.
**These 8 hours will consist of starting the day off with yoga & meditation to the sounds of African drumming. We will then proceed with a host of fun festivities surrounding natural hair, discussions on important topics pertaining to Black women, live music, and poetry. (official line-up will be announced at a later date)
