Ruth Noack (DAI Faculty 2010-2019) writes us from Washington where she moved to lead and curate The Corner at Whitman-Walker: " I would love to see you all at "See You There”, however unlikely that is for most of you. We will have some info online from the opening weekend on, but we are NOT going virtual, as I have made a promise to keep the analogue space open and safely accessible as well as that is possible. It is a committment to our local community, who might not find their way into a zoom meeting or onto an arts' website." Find more details here.
See You There gathers documents, fresh stories and artworks, some of them newly commissioned. It casts back a queer look at some of the facts and some of the lore of Whitman-Walker. It catches a glimpse at vital stories about Black and Lesbian life in this city. It envisions a future of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and Black liberation. And it witnesses a younger generation giving voice to their aspirations. For when history is something we make together, a better future becomes imaginable.
See You There is inspired by The Whitman-Walker Oral History Project, which chronicles narratives and experiences of patients, advocates, program directors, and community members.
