‘The People Are The Light’ Film Premiere

CMOA Theater

Free Event

Join us for the premiere of Alisha Wormsley’s newest film and photographic series, The People Are The Light, inspired by a month-long series of events that Wormsley curated in Homewood as part of the Hillman Photography Initiative. Wormsley partnered with twelve artists and collaborators to launch two site-specific installations and ten workshops in the community on subjects such as restorative writing, yoga and meditation, hair art, and the Black Maker Movement.

Following the screening, join us for a lively discussion with Wormsley and four of her collaborators: Nisha Blackwell, Bekezela Mguni, Ricardo Robinson, and Anqwenique Wingfield as they share their experiences with and within the Homewood community.

Registration is recommended.

Stick around afterward for Third Thursday: Art Wars. Tickets are discounted to $5 for attendees of the premiere.
