The evening will feature eight culturally and spiritually diverse artists who will share live performances and personal reflections about how they've been transformed through the sacred arts activist training program. Over the past 7 months the artists have been learning about arts activism, developing spiritual practices for mindful action, and working on the front lines of grassroots campaigns. Enjoy live music, poetry, painting, storytelling and more!
