For the last three years, a revolution has been growing in the district. It started with a jersey, a few rondos, and an olé. The people responded. The message spread. More jerseys, a few audacious nutmegs, and weekly futsal. A cultural shift picked up steam. And now, the revolution prepares for its most ambitious measure yet.
On June 28, venture into The Mind of Guerrilla - a two-week pop-up/exhibition at Homme DC curated by Guerrilla FC. Inside is a sensory exploration of the eclectic components of a culture that drives and inspires this diverse community of creatives.
On display will be two art installations, two photography installations, and a video/audio installation. New, never before seen, Guerrilla FC gear will also be available, including a collaboration with South African, breakdance collective Heal the Hood and underground, hip hop production company Nomadic Wax.
In communion with the pop-up and exhibit, Guerrilla FC has curated two live events during this period. On June 29, there will be a panel discussion on football culture and this summer’s World Cup. On July 12, Guerrilla FC and Homme DC welcome the Shirtless Plantain Show to perform a live show.
