beheard --End Racism! Unity to Build Community!
Support the Movement: beheard—End Racism—Unity to Build Community!
* beheard.world is a non-profit that uses the making of films and performances to give voice to individuals and communities that need to be seen and heard. To stop the advancing racism and to come together to close the divisions that keep us from unity, our diverse troupe from Boston is committed and dedicated to bringing people together to make positive social change.
* For the past year, beheard.world’s nine modern and hip hop dancers, three poets, and an award winning film crew has toured across America from NYC, Baltimore, Jackson, MS and up the Black Great Migration Trail to Chicago, giving free performances of its highly touted Invisible: Imprints. Facilitated discussions followed with each audience about what they’ve seen, felt and learned.
* Making change starts with honest conversations and telling the truth about our history! It raises critical new awareness to not only understand what has divided us, but how to move forward.
* In this light we are creating a companion piece called Watermark that celebrates our differences but also what we have in common when, like a watermark, we reveal ourselves by being held up to light.
* We are also now editing a documentary of the conversations we had with audiences and untold stories from interviews with Civil Rights activists from our tours for national distribution.
* All donations will go to pay the costs of continuing to support beheard.world's performing arts and film that advance the campaign, from making Watermark, to travel and food for our dancers and poets, to editing the documentary.
Please donate and join us! Every dollar makes a difference!
In unity, we can do it!
