Art After Trump: A Response and a Gathering is a marathon-style (no introductions, no hosts) reading hosted by and featuring artists and arts administrators. The results of the 2016 election were a shocking education for many on the realities of our fellow citizens. We asked our 150 performers: as an artist, how are you reacting to this uncertain future? What do you want to say or do? Each performer was invited to prepare a 2-minute performance of any form and any content.

Admission is free. Please RSVP on Facebook.
