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.

*A sliding scale $20–$50 donation is suggested. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

10% of all donations will go to a local organization led by and serving the BIPOC community.

All students who participate in on-campus activities this fall are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. That means if you plan on attending class or extracurricular activities in-person, you must first get vaccinated.

You must fill out a self-attestation form before coming back to campus. This can be found by logging into your my.commnet portal.

The vaccines that are currently authorized in the United States are safe, highly effective, and critical to resuming normal operations at our campuses this fall. If you have not already done so, now is the time get vaccinated. With more infectious, more severe variants becoming more and more prevalent, getting your shot is the best way to protect yourself and your family.
