In Real Time » Passing the Mic for Justice: Call and Response

Presented in collaboration with My-T-By-Design Therapeutic Art Studios and Poetic Justice Open Mic Series, Crystal Bridges and the Momentary invite you to an evening of virtual performances featuring local artists (Abel, Akau Anyieth, Audrey Romero, Itty Smalls, Justine Ryan, Leora Jackson, Noelia Cerna, NaTosha Devon, and Robyn) presenting poetry, spoken word, and music in pursuit of social justice. For this Call and Response event, we passed the mic to five artists who have each invited another artist to join them. The event will be hosted by LIFE and Jared Carter.

Crystal Bridges and the Momentary are committed to addressing the urgent issues of our time. As we look for a path forward, we want to provide a space for civil discourse, offer historical perspectives, lift up marginalized voices, and carry forth the work of promoting equality. In Real Time is a series of live, virtual programs formed in response to current events affecting our community at large. The programming comprises a variety of opportunities, such as panel discussions, community conversations, open mic sessions, and education resources for participants to hear from and connect with community leaders, artists, and subject matter experts about select topics “in real time.” In Real Time programming will be ongoing. Check our calendar for upcoming events. Read more about our commitment to being an antiracist institution. We hope you can join us.
