Socially Engaged Art
August 6, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
An event every week that begins at 6:30 PM on Thursday, repeating until August 27, 2020
Thursdays 6:30 – 8:00pm
Outside at Waterfall Arts, 256 High St., Belfast, ME 04915
All ages| Free
No registration required.
A space for conversations about how we might engage through the arts to catalyze social action, respond to or investigate our current reality, and process or instigate change. This gathering is appropriate for artists of any discipline, medium or inclination (dance, music, sculpture, poetry, etc.!) who are interested in art as social practice. Community-based or personal projects or initiatives may emerge organically from the group discussions. Meet up by the entrance to Waterfall Arts (at the picnic tables, in the parking lot) at 6:30pm.
Gatherings will be cancelled in event of heavy rain.
Public health and your personal safety is our top priority.
All in-person Waterfall Arts programs in the summer of 2020 will be held outdoors and physically-distanced. If materials are provided for any program, they will be prepared at least two days in advance and packaged in individual materials kits for each participant. For programs that take pre-registrations online, students will receive advance notice of any materials they are encouraged to bring to the program, for their own use. All programs are being designed such that participants can maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from one another and from the teacher, at all times – whether seated or in movement. *Masks are required (particularly during times of instruction and discussion), for all in-person Waterfall Arts programs.
Open-sided tents will be set up on the lawn to help provide protection from sun and rain. Participants are encouraged to bring their own umbrellas, large hats, or other forms of sun protection. When used, public tables and chairs will be wiped down and sanitized before and after the run of the program. Building access will be provided for participants who need to use the restroom or refill their water bottles (with our no-touch cold water dispenser). Wearing a mask is required when inside the Waterfall Arts building, and hand sanitizer is available in the building as well.
