Visual AIDS: Alternate Endings, Activist Risings
Saturday, December 1, 1 pm
Alternate Endings, Activist Risings highlights the impact of art in AIDS activism and advocacy today by commissioning compelling short videos from six inspiring community organizations and collectives—ACT UP NY, Positive Women’s Network, Sero Project, The SPOT, Tacoma Action Collective, and VOCAL NY. The program represents a wide range of organizational strategies, from direct action to grassroots service providers to nation-wide movement building, while also considering the role of creative practices in activist responses to the ongoing AIDS crisis.
Alternate Endings, Activist Risings reflects on the persisting urgencies of today’s HIV/AIDS epidemic by pointing to pressing and intersecting political concerns, including HIV criminalization, Big Pharma, homelessness, and the disproportionate effects of HIV on marginalized communities. At a moment of growing interest in the histories of AIDS activism, this program foregrounds contemporary engagements between activists, artists, and cultural workers on the front lines. Program length: 90 minutes. Recommended for 16+.
Co-presented with Volunteers of America Mid-States, Kentuckiana AIDS Alliance, and the Fairness Campaign. This program has been made possible by Visual AIDS.
