Hands Up Atlanta: Art and Activism
Alliance Theatre presents “Hands Up Atlanta: Art and Activism”
Streaming Oct 8 – 29, 2020
In partnership with local artists, activists, and community organizations, the Alliance Theatre will host Hands Up Atlanta: Art and Activism, a series of conversations exploring the role of artistic expression as an activist tool to ignite dialogue, reflection, and civic participation around critical issues affecting Black lives. Each conversation will cover topics and themes found in the Alliance’s upcoming production of The New Black Fest’s HANDS UP: Seven Playwrights, Seven Testaments, including discussions on black image, identity, and allyship. The series will include five free events during the month of October. Each event will feature special guest speakers and a screening of a film short that has been developed to represent the topic of that evening’s discussion. These conversations are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are required to access the stream. To learn more and RSVP, visit www.alliancetheatre.org/artandactivism.
