So much gun violence in the US. How can we help heal it? Speak out through the arts! If you want to make a change in your community, get involved in music, dance, theatre or art. Find your talent and make a difference. The arts create a strong bond between people, helping resolve conflict creatively. And when people leave, what lives on? The art they have created. An added bonus: NYC has a multi-billion dollar arts industry – learn to be any kind of artist you want to be and make your future successful.
Come see how Sundog Theatre’s “Soundtrack of Life” program has helped Curtis, McKee, and other high school students become recording artists by using music and spoken word to heal conflict and avoid gun violence. Sundog is holding a three-hour, borough-wide event at the majestic St. George Theatre on Staten Island Saturday, June 9 from 1pm – 4pm.
Participate in a pop-up recording session or create an art project, get a cool t-shirt or tote bag, hear about the program and facts about gun violence, talk with organizations that will help young people get involved in the arts, and have a snack.
Learn how you can become a creative change agent – not a victim or bystander to gun violence. Adults: listen to our young people. Teens and pre-teens: get involved! Sundog Theatre, June 9, from 1-4pm, 35 Hyatt Street in Staten Island. #ArtHealsNYC
