*Tickets are suggested donation and all proceeds go to youth arts programming in Cincinnati*

 

This Juneteenth join us online for an interactive performance that reflects the unique and universal story of Cincinnati through ritual, song, and storytelling. 

 

Since October of 2019, In[HEIR]itance artists have been working in-person and virtually with Cincinnati residents and community leaders to create this event, which brings together residents’ lived perspectives, themes of liberation and oppression, the Jewish rituals of the Passover Seder, and the musical spirit of the Gospel Church. Many of the words and lyrics in the performance come directly from our open process that began in Oct 2019, working with Cincinnati residents in person until March 2020, and then virtually since COVID-19.

 

The 60 minute presentation will be followed by a 30 minute talk back conversation with In[HEIR]itance Project artists & Cincinnati Leaders. Because the presentation will be online, individuals are able to participate alone at home, as well as in small, safe, in-person gatherings where possible. No need to have any prior experience or knowledge to show up. This is an opportunity to see YOUR city reflected through YOUR words and to learn what your neighbors have to say too.
