11Reflections: San Francisco

11Reflections: San Francisco

11Reflections: San Francisco

In September 2022, Art2Action launched a new partnership with BRAVA For Women in the Arts and producing partner Golden Thread Productions to develop the second community co-created performance in our national series, Eleven Reflections on the Nation. This iteration, 11Reflections: San Francisco, invites artists of color, community members, and creative allies in the Bay Area to participate in Story Circles, workshops, creative writing, and theatre-making in response to the question: What has the impact of the post-9/11 era been in your city? While centering Southwest/Central Asian and North African (SWANA), Middle Eastern/North African/South Asian (MENASA), and Muslim American stories, the project will explore the interconnected impacts for multiple, intersecting communities in the Bay Area, by lifting up YOUR stories. We’re excited to exchange and collaborate with Bay Area organizations and community groups such as the Shahrazad Squad, the Aswat Ensemble, and more!

What Do the Women Say? 2023: Fighters for Freedom

On March 8, 2023, Golden Thread Productions' annual celebration What Do the Women Say? featured the theme "Fighters for Freedom" in 2023, aligning with the International Women’s Day global theme #EmbraceEquity. Art2Action artists Andrea Assaf and Lubana Al Quntar performed this woman, this sea from Eleven Reflections on September, and devised a new collaborative piece with Bay Area artists Rahaf Abuobeid, Alaa Ibrahim, Nida Khalil, Mahjabin Khanzada, and Layle Omeran. 

Mark your calendars for the final, culminating production at Brava in September 2024! Join our e-news mailing list for updates!
