Now in its 10th year, Bearing Witness is a critical opportunity for our young people to tell their own stories. To bear witness is the act of giving evidence to confirm that the events happened, that words were spoken, that we were there. At such a pivotal moment in our community’s struggle for racial and economic justice, the ability to shape and share one’s own narrative has become essential.
Purchasing a ticket at any level, you are supporting our youth’s creative power and a new generation of media professionals. Learn more at www.tcproject.org
Transformative Culture Project (TCP) harnesses the economic power of creative arts for youth and community development. We imagine a world in which artists and cultural creatives are celebrated and compensated for their role in imagining the future and connecting people. Bearing witness embodies this mission by creating and fostering community connection through art equity and economic empowerment.
