Art & Social Change: Performing art has long been a platform for expressing outrage at injustice. Experience some of NYC’s most exciting artist/activists at BPAC in honor of Arts Advocacy Day and the Weissman College of Arts and Sciences Art-A-Thon.
11am – 12:30pm - Theatre of the Oppressed NYC Popular Theatre Troupe TONYC engages the audience in a Forum Play, using theatre as a medium for communal problem-solving around injustices experienced by homeless and jobless New Yorkers.
12:30pm – 2pm – Activist Artists Share Their Work Playwright, actor, singer-songwriter, performance artist, and social critic Taylor Mac, choreographer and disability rights advocate Heidi Latsky, and Urban Bush Women, who are developing a work about race, gender, and economic inequality in the lives of African-American women at BPAC, offer examples of their activist work.
