ARTISTS TAKE ACTION A Sample of Artistic Responses to Our Political Times

Shortly after the 2016 presidential election, a group of local artists of all disciplines joined together to develop artistic responses to policy changes that were affecting social justice. Artists Take Action is a sampler of these short performance pieces, including drama, music, object theater and poetry. Following the performance, audience members are invited to stay for a facilitated exploration of audience perspectives.
