Many Voices, One Akron

Presented by Friends of Chestnut Ridge Park at Chestnut Ridge Park, Akron OH

Oct 20 2018
Many Voices, One Akron

A celebration of the diversity that makes Akron a rich and vibrant city.

On October 2nd, Kenmore had the privilege of hosting NYCPT’s performance of the Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer prize winning play, SWEAT. Set in a rust-belt town, the play explores the effects of de-industrialization through the lens of poverty, race and discrimination.

With Many Voices, One Akron, Friends of Chestnut Ridge Park seeks to amplify that conversation by adding our own voices to the national narrative.

Music, poetry, theater and more!

This event was made possible in collaboration with New York City Public Theater, Arts Now, the Akron Parks Collaborative and the City of Akron
