ACT LOCALLY: Social Justice Residencies
As the world shifts under our feet, we’re shifting our focus to local artists, creating residencies with some powerful artists who call the Triangle home. Social justice and community building is vital to their work. Throughout 2020 and 2021, we’ll amplify their voices, fuel their artistic practice, and design impactful ways to gather to ignite our collective creativity and reimagine our shared future. We’re currently designing residency events with the following artists:
beloved ChamberSoul cellist and vocalist who inspires, educates and activates communities
choreographers Murielle Elizéon and Tommy Noonan’s performing arts laboratory that creates vibrant community gatherings and platforms for restorative justice
