We are Cuney Homes: George Floyd Legacy Artistic Expressions

The Community of George Floyd presents: “We Are The Cuney Homes” A Life Stream Theatrical Poetic Presentation & Student Workshop.

Presented by Mack Performing Arts Collective (MPAC) in association with Joseph “Joe P.” Palmore & Acting Up Studios (AUS).

 

Children and residents of Cuney Homes will share stories of growing up in a low-income housing development where many deal with hard times and social injustice. They will explore the life and childhood of George Floyd and use him as inspiration. Participants will be using texts, lighting, costumes, make-up, and scenery to bring their stories to life. The workshop will conclude with a Theatrical Poetic presentation for the community.

Students will explore how:

  • To find their voice and turn it into art
