Alternate Endings, Activist Risings highlights the impact of art in HIV/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 considering the role of creative practices in activist responses to the ongoing AIDS crisis. The screening will be followed by panel discussion of HIV/AIDS in the St. Louis Black community.
This event is part of *Impact HIV/AIDS* — an arts and culture community awareness initiative led by the The Griot Museum of Black History that will use exhibition, storytelling, visual art, mapping, oral history and other forms of expression to explore the ongoing relationship between HIV/AIDS and the St. Louis Region’s African-American community.
This event is co-sponsored by The Griot Museum of Black History, Empower Missouri, The Divided City, Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, and Washington University Libraries.
