We will begin the day at 9AM with registration and refreshments.
Worship begins at 9:30. Following worship we will have our adult program (children’s program begins at 9:45). For the adults, we welcome The Meta Theatre Company – Dismantling The Racism Machine – MTC will act out the “invention” of race. They are bringing Dr. Karen Gaffney with them, who wrote the book. In the show, they have bystander intervention training about issues in the work place. This can also be applied to immigration.
About MTC: For the last 5 years, MTC rehearses as volunteers at The Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women. The cast consists of incarcerated women, as well as theatre activists outside the prison walls. MTC uses theatre to educate about mass incarceration, and the oppressions caused by larger systems around intersections of white privilege, race, class gender and sexual orientation. MTC performs the work of the women of Edna Mahan in the community to raise awareness about the importance of liberating re-entry programs, and create action to change how women come back to their communities after they serve their time. The women of the Edna Mahan Theatre Program also perform in the prison to share their knowledge, and create change with other incarcerated women.creates live performance for communities to share experiences, heal and grow. MTC’s mission is to create theatre about the issues of white privilege, race, class, gender and sexual orientation, and help audiences create social change in their communities. After the curtain falls, community action begins!
