The Awakening


Created by our Multidisciplinary Arts Team

The Awakening is a declaration of human potential at a time of human struggle. This pop-up multimedia arts experience blends music, poetry, and visual art to explore issues of grief, violence, identity, beauty, and hope. Co-created and co-curated by local artists of diverse racial and religious backgrounds, it is a unique and urgent kind of protest: a fierce affirmation of solidarity and collaboration in the face of political forces that seek to divide us apart.
