Like all art forms, theater can be an intensely political act. But does that make it activism? Join us as we explore the assumptions we make about our art, and how artists can leverage our creativity and civic power for change in our communities. This month's event features a civic keynote by Tony Award-winning playwright Lisa Kron, music from Troy Anthony, and poetry from Christopher Soto.
In a climate of divisiveness and seclusion, Public Forum is opening its doors to invite audiences to join us every month for CIVIC SALON: a monthly gathering where we can come together in the spirit of community to nurture our minds and our bodies. Each month will feature a different theme and different participants who will bring readings, songs, and a keynote address – all chosen in the hopes of inspiring civic engagement and social change
