Mark Your Calendars for our March Mixer! We are co-hosting with Jewish Voice for Peace-Atlanta Chapter 📆 Friday, March 13th!

This collaborative event will introduce you to a brilliant initiative of The Freedom Theatre in Jenin, Palestine: The Freedom Bus uses interactive theatre and cultural activism to bear witness, raise awareness and build alliances throughout occupied Palestine and beyond.

During Freedom Bus events, Palestinian actors and musicians invite true stories from communities across Palestine and subsequently transform each account into a piece of improvised theatre. The Freedom Bus also organizes multi-day stays and building and accompaniment work in communities subjected to home demolitions, settler violence and military aggression.

Endorsers of the Freedom Bus include Alice Walker, Angela Davis, John Berger, Judith Butler, Luisa Morgantini, Maya Angelou, Noam Chomsky, Omar Barghouti and many more.

We will be screening pieces from past Freedom Rides and exploring the capacity of interactive theatre (specifically Playback Theatre) to reclaim space, agitate and liberate. This is going to be an exciting one!

Our partners at Jewish Voice for Peace-Atlanta Chapter will be co-hosting this event in our mutual effort to stand in solidarity with Palestinian civil society. Meet organizers and learn how to get involved in JVP’s local movement work.

Doors at 7.30PM
Event 8PM
