Gathering Ground Theatre Presents: Tales of Sleepless Nights (Volunteers needed)
March 27, 2019
We are Gathering Ground Theatre, a theatre troupe up of Austinites who experience homelessness and use performance to advocate on behalf of the homeless community. We are writing you to invite you to our upcoming performance, Tales of Sleepless Nights. It is a performative tour of homelessness through downtown Austin conceived and performed by troupe members who have experienced homelessness. Each performance will be followed by a community conversation where the audience is invited to join the performers in a dialogue on how we can collectively decriminalize homelessness.
We are currently looking for volunteers for outreach, production support and documentation as well as food/drink donations for attendees so that we can make this important project happen. We are determined to create space for this performance so that folks most impacted by homelessness can lead the way, and we would like to invite you in helping us achieve this.
You can support our project by sharing our volunteer call information with your networks and individuals you think may be interested.
