ARTFARM presents Where Are We Now?: A Performative Grief & Healing ritual to tend our racial wounds

June 25 – 27 outdoors on the campus of Middlesex Community College

ARTFARM artists merge ritual and performance to speak to this moment in our culture in relation to race and inequity and offer a balm for our collective healing.

Ritual, the root of theater, is an ancient form of healing where emotion and gesture guide the practice. Integrating trans-generational and historic trauma while celebrating unique ancestries is essential for a healthy, cohesive society. Increased consciousness through sharing and acknowledging community grief can lead to an opening of hearts and to cultural transformation.

Venture with us?

Events will take place Outdoors in The Grove at Middlesex Community College, 100 Training Hill Rd. Middletown, CT on June 25, 26 & 27 at 6pm.

Bring your own blankets or lawn chairs- and something to place on the altar of grief, if you so choose.

Entry is FREE, but there is a Sliding Scale Suggested Donation of $20 - $50. No one will be turned away for lack of Funds. 10% of all donations will support the Middletown Racial Justice Coalition.

We are limiting the audience size, so reservations are requested. To make a reservation, or for more info, contact ARTFARM at (860) 346-4390 or
