** The monthly To Remember: The AMP Virtual Arts Series is co-presented with The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway. **
Books, plays, short stories, essays, and poetry… the written word has conveyed many facets of HIV and AIDS in a variety of styles. In this program, local writers read from their work, sharing their experiences with the AIDS pandemic and its impacts. We’ll listen to work from Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, Chad Goller-Sojourner, Rebecca Brown, John Treat, Timothy White Eagle, Tranisha Arzah, Patrick Milion, Fox Whitney, Steven Knipp, Daniel W.K. Lee, Greg Colucci, Eddie Walker, and Julene Weaver. They will provide memories, reflections, sorrow, and hope in this hour-long program.
About the Series:
The monthly series hopes to bring anticipation and awareness of The AMP’s completion later this year. Located along the plaza above the Capitol Hill Link light rail station and Cal Anderson Park, each installation of The AMP will be designed to take visitors through an emotional and historic journey related to the AIDS epidemic in Seattle/King County from the early 1980s to today. These works of physical and digital art, created by artists of different backgrounds and perspectives, will tell stories of remembrance, reflection, creativity, and action surrounding the AIDS crisis and the community’s ongoing response. An official dedication will be scheduled around World AIDS Day on December 1, 2020.
About The AMP:
The AMP is a community-driven and collaboratively funded project that uses public art to create a physical place for remembrance and reflection, utilizes technology to share stories about the AIDS epidemic and the diverse community responses to the crisis and provides a call to action to end HIV/AIDS as well as the stigma and discrimination associated with it. The AMP offers visitors opportunities for meaningful participation in their projects, which serve as a reminder of the collective need to be active, remain vigilant, and stand ready to fight scapegoating and discrimination however and whenever they may arise.
