The Line: Art 4 Social Change


Sunday, August 21, 2016 3:00PM


In partnership with Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities, Virginia Stage Company will present “The Line: Art for Social Change” at Slover Public Library in downtown Norfolk on August 21, 2016 at 3PM.

The Line is the first interactive, forum workshop in the Education and Community Engagement department’s Art For Social Change Series. It promises artistic immersion, using scenes from James Baldwin’s epic 1964 play, Blues for Mister Charlie, as well as modern dance, spoken word, digital art, and open-forum, discussion-based activities.

This workshop will provide our community with a vocabulary for deconstructing racial boundaries. By empowering community members to investigate and deconstruct racially divided areas, The Line will inspire the creation of democratic and equitable spaces in southeastern Virginia.

The event will also feature the work and historical input of Cultural Geographer and Christopher Newport University professor, Johnny Finn, and choreography by Ann Mazzocca.
