People’s State of the Union Story Circle
January 27, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Most years, the President’s State of the Union address highlights the past year and suggests priorities for the year ahead. It’s a broadcast from one to many. But democracy is a conversation, not a monologue. Understanding the state of our union takes We the People reflecting in our own communities, coming together across political divides, sharing our stories and listening.
The People’s State of the Union is a national event conceived by activist arts organization US Dept of Arts & Culture and coordinated in 500 towns across the US.
As part of this effort, the Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts will host a Boston gathering. All are invited to share their own stories reflecting this nation’s recent past and immediate future. There is no need to prepare anything in advance; participants are encouraged to "Just show up and be yourself." Advance registration is not required, but it's encouraged. Light refreshments will be served.
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
