mm

Get tipsy and tip the scales. Movement Monday is a collaboration between Ace Hotel New Orleans, DJ ChinuaResistance Radio of WHIV, Indivisible New Orleans and various community partners to create an informal space for co-operation, discourse, and movement around a variety of issues in New Orleans and nationwide.

We define movement as purposeful intellectual, cultural, and ideological progress from uninformed to informed, from siloed to collaborative, and from passive to active. Held monthly, each Movement Monday will include a live audience taping of WHIV’s hour long Resistance Radio show (hosted by Kenny Francis and Dr. MarkAlain Dery) featuring an interview with a culturally or politically relevant guest and a post-taping happy hour (READ: with real happy hour prices!) for casual but purposeful discussion of the topics covered during the interview as well as an opportunity for action spearheaded by a local community partner.

Ashtin Berry is a food and beverage activist and beverage consultant committed to creating equitable spaces within the hospitality industry. She focuses on creating hospitality trainings that implement inclusive language that can be applied to everyday work.

In 2018, she joined Bacardi to headline the inaugural Women in Leadership Tour, and has spoken at a number of conferences including Chicago Style, Toronto Cocktail Conference, and S.H.E.Summit. Berry's work has been featured in top industry publications including Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Chefs Feed, and Star Chefs.

In her forthcoming Column Family Meal, Berry unpacks the systemic issues facing the hospitality industry alongside industry professionals and experts. Known for her work with Air's champagne Parlor, Tokyo Record Bar and Ace Hotel New Orleans this winter, Berry is taking her experience of conceptualizing bar programs and directing beverage programs, to open her very own establishment in New Orleans, LA.
