G.A.P. to participate in New York City’s First-Ever Social Justice Artists’ Convening
G.A.P. is excited to be a part of the first Social Justice Artists' Convening planed by the Social Justice Artists' Collaborative on Wednesday, September 21. The day-long convening will bring together NYC-based arts organizations, artists, and supporting funders in an unprecedented opportunity to create community among those doing work at the intersection of arts and social justice. Through cutting-edge, star-studded performances and dynamic workshops designed to mobilize for impact, the goal of this unprecedented gathering by artists working with low-income communities is to ensure that those most affected by injustice have creative supports and networks for generating change.
“This work matters right now because art is not a luxury. It is an essential element of creating and sustaining equitable conditions,” said Iris Morales, Executive Director of the Union Square Awards and a co-sponsor of the Social Justice Artists’ Convening. “We have come together with the intent of sharing best practices and developing a network that supports social justice work and the sustainability of our arts, culture, artists, and organizations.”
To keep the momentum going following a high-energy and sold-out day, the Social Justice Artists' Collaborative is hosting “Performance Artivism! A Cultural Evening of Visual Art & Performance with Heart, Soul and Guts!” FREE of boundaries, FREE of mind and FREE of charge, Performance Artivsm! is set of high-voltage cultural performances open to the public starting 7:30pm. Emceed by Mildred Ruiz-Sapp, the evening of live performances feature Bryonn Bain, Yalini Dream, Climbing Poetree and Angel Rodriguez with percussionists.
