Alternate Endings, Activist Risings
- Saturday, December 1, 2018
- Smith College Poetry Center
- 1:30–3:30 PM
SCMA is pleased to collaborate with Visual AIDS and the Smith College Poetry Center for Day With(out) Art. Highlighting the impact of art in contemporary AIDS activism and advocacy, the program features new short videos from six inspiring community organizations and collectives - ACT UP NY, Positive Women's Network, Sero Project, The SPOT, Tacoma Action Collective, and VOCAL NY.
ALTERNATE ENDINGS, ACTIVIST RISINGS seeks to reflect the persisting urgencies of today’s HIV/AIDS epidemic by pointing to pressing and intersecting political concerns, including HIV criminalization, Big Pharma, homelessness, and the disproportionate effects of HIV on marginalized communities. At a moment of growing interest in the histories of AIDS activism, ALTERNATE ENDINGS, ACTIVIST RISINGS foregrounds contemporary engagements between activists, artists, and cultural workers on the front lines.
