Come out on May 28th to the Joyce Beers Center for an Activist San Diego Cultural Night! This event will be an open forum to discuss the role of music, art, spoken word and other types of self-expression and it's relevance to our current social and political movements. It's also going to be a mini preview of our RedFest event we are working towards building this fall. This your chance to get involved and share your vo...ice, while enjoying some awesome entertainment.
There will be performances by a few local musical acts, and in between those acts we will have an Open-Mic for anyone that wants to share a poem or a song. Come early to sign up as time will be limited and we want to give as many people a chance to share their perspectives as possible! If you've painted a picture or another piece of artwork inspired by your political beliefs or social justice, bring it to display!
We will also be accepting donations to help build RedFest. Donations will go to securing the space for the event, any permits we have to get, and promotion. Donations can also come in the form of volunteering or providing experience and knowledge. We want this event to be community driven, so help from the community is beyond valuable; it is essential! If you have experience or access to services or technology that will help make RedFest a success, we would love to have you on the committee.
RedFest will also feature local music acts, poets, and artists with a decidedly political perspective and it will be on a much larger scale. There are several purposes for having this event. The main one will be to give the community a space to see the creative side of our movement and the chance to be involved in helping spread a message of empowerment and social justice. Lend your voice and you we will make it be heard!
We also want to raise money for Activist San Diego's Radio Project, which is working to bring a public radio station to San Diego! When Corporate Radio tries to marginalize and ignore our voices, we say refuse to be silenced! Carve out your own space and be heard!
So come out and find out how you can be involved, enjoy some great local entertainment, refreshments, and get involved in the conversation!See More
