HOW ARTISTS SHAPE OUR FUTURE

If you’re wondering where the spiritual "after party" for the Festival will be, look no further than this party in the form of a panel discussion, where New Haven Director of Cultural Affairs Adriane Jefferson will lead a talk among many of the festival’s headliners, including theater visionary Madeline Sayet, “wild” (PRI) front man of Mwenso & the Shakes Michael Mwenso, and BLACK HAVEN queer artist and activist Salwa Abdussabur. These luminaries will discuss what a future honoring artistic equity and liberation can (and should!) look like.
