Pathways to Change: Performances and Awards

Published On October 10, 2011 | By Kymbo Slice | Community, Music, The Arts

You might remember a little blip we did a few weeks ago on the Three Rivers Community Foundation’s Building Change: A Convergence for Social Justice. We’re here to tell you more about a series of performances being held in conjunction with the conference. Each of these local performers use their art to further the causes of economic, environmental and racial justice encompassing gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, youth, women and family issues and disability rights. These dancers, drummers, singers, spoken word artists, musicians, poets, and actors, are bringing about the change they want to see in the world by performing their art forms.

Artists Include:
Deryck Tynes
Jasiri X
Kevin May
Legacy Dancers
Dreams of Hope
Cindy Shaffer
Wing & A Prayer
Benjamin Saalbech-Walsh
Dreams in Motion
Essence of Sound
Kellee Maize
Dream Job

The performances will take place on Friday, October 14 from 7 to 11PM on the 5th floor (Mueller Center) of the Heinz History Center. Cost is $10. Visit the Facebook page for the event and make some plans!
