An Urban Perspective: Black Minds Rewired

Friday, Oct 26, 2018 from 5:00 PM to 2:30 PM

Location: Yale West Campus, Building 410, 100 West Campus Drive, Orange, CT

This is one of our 2018 City-Wide Open Studios Commissions.

By: Elizabeth Nearing, Dawnise Traore & Collaborators

This collection of 30 short pieces collected from writers, musicians, and poets from New Haven and beyond explores race, mental health, and the stigma surrounding mental illness in poor black communities. Wellbeing cannot be achieved without a well mind, and this project seeks to address that fact and its interaction with urban communities.

An open conversation will follow every performance. Audience members are welcome to share their reflections, reactions, and experiences in a supportive space, alongside the performers.

Made possible by the generous support of the CT Health Foundation and an Anonymous Donor.
