As budget cuts are sweeping the city impacting arts and education programs for vulnerable youth, artists and journalists gather in an evening to benefit EarSay’s youth program in Queens for immigrant teenagers and kids from conflict-zones who have little or no access to arts training.
One of the most eclectic events in New York City! An evening celebrating women and children, featuring performances of monologues, dance, poetry, music by:
Carl Hancock Rux
Judith Sloan (performing an excerpt from YO MISS!)
Also actors reading excerpts from Crossing the BLVD including: Bridget Kelso, Chris Kamau, Justin Hudson, Catherine Hanna, Bridgit Antoinette Evans, Vaimoana Niumeitolu, Percy Lujan, Prerana Reddy, and Jonathan Stuart (from Viper Records), and a special performance by high school students from EarSay’s Transforming Trauma Into Art theatre project.
