PLOWSHARES THEATRE LAUNCHES PLOWSHARES ARTISTS’ SALON SERIES
This Saturday, February 23 you’re invited to a free, open-to-the-public Plowshares Artists’ Salon. This series is designed around the real-life, real-time issues and ideas surrounding the theatre. The purpose is to create a space for compassionate and challenging conversations around issues of social justice, equity, and the arts. The Plowshares Artists’ Salon Series will occur every month around a new guest and topic.
The Salon gets off to a great beginning with an exploration of “What is Black Theatre?” The series is hosted by Plowshares Theatre’s Artistic Director, Gary Anderson.
The Artists’ Salons are a comfortable gathering for artists and patrons share their thoughts, reflections and ideas through a focused discussion on topics of interest to Detroit and its creative community. Each session is a moderated discussions with a panel of renowned experts, community opinion-makers, and cultural thought-leaders in dialogue about the context, issues, and ideas finding a voice on our stages. Salons are moderated by Plowshares ensemble members who will help guide the conversation. Drinks and refreshments create a casual atmosphere, where ideas can flow and the mind can be inspired.
The session begins at 1:30 pm with refreshments and light bites, followed by a 90-minute presentation and discussion. Come out and join us for the Plowshares Artists’ Salon series. Be a part of the exciting conversation and new beginnings!
