Ukrainian Independence Day HIPPIE PARTY

  • Chicon Collective 301 Chicon St Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

We are most often called a hippie kind of crowd. Well, what do you really know about hippies other than the 1960s-70s movement in the USA?

According to Wikipedia “The hippie subculture began its development as a youth movement in the United States during the early 1960s and then developed around the world. Its origins may be traced to European social movements in the 19th and early 20th century such as Bohemians, and the influence of Eastern religion and spirituality. From around 1967, its fundamental ethos — including harmony with nature, communal living, artistic experimentation particularly in music, and the widespread use of recreational drugs — spread around the world during the counterculture of the 1960s, which has become closely associated with the subculture”. 

One of the Eastern European countries with love for freedom, folk music and long history that begins from the 5th century is Ukraine. If you look at Ukrainian traditional clothing you will definitely see the hippies in them. 
Since the Independence Day of Ukraine is August 24th, we invite you to come to Chicon Collective this coming Monday in the most hippie clothing you got.
