Cleveland Public Theatre is beginning to plan the fourth annual Station Hope event – a free multi-arts event that celebrates the triumphs of the Underground Railroad, Cleveland’s social justice history, and contemporary struggles for freedom and justice. The format of Station Hope includes multiple stages with 10-15 minute pieces performing simultaneously throughout the evening.
This year, Station Hope will be a massive community celebration at and surrounding Ohio City’s historic St. John’s Church – Cleveland’s only authenticated Underground Railroad site – on April 29th, 2017.
CPT is looking for artists, performance groups, choirs and organizations to create original work and perform at this powerful event. Performances can range from site-specific plays, actors in character wandering through the event, or your church choir singing. We are also seeking visual artists who are interested in creating community generated art and installations.
If you are interested in learning more about Station Hope, you are encouraged to attend an informational meeting on Saturday, January 7th, at 1:00 p.m. at Cleveland Public Theatre. We will be discussing how Station Hope has worked in the past and sharing information about the application process.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP by January 4th to Andy Weyenberg, CPT’s Artistic and Education Associate, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
