AFP 2017: Sharing Stories/Connecting Communities
The Anne Frank Project is excited to announce the schedule for its ninth annual social justice festival, AFP 2017: Sharing Stories/Connecting Communities, to be held October 3 and 4 at Buffalo State. AFP 2017 engages participants in multidisciplinary, kinesthetic learning experiences facilitated by local, national, and international scholars, artists, and activists. Look for sessions showcasing Buffalo State faculty, staff, and alumni.
About Our Theme
Our increasingly divisive world is actually the product of a small number of powerful communities rather than the multiple diverse groups of people whose stories are often silenced by oppression, or simply unknown. AFP 2017 encourages presenters and participants to surface these marginalized communities, navigate their difficulties, address conflicts, disassemble assumptions, and practice sharing stories to connect communities and improve the world.
Let’s share stories and strengthen our community. Use the links below to get involved.
If you have questions or if you would like to schedule a class visit before or after AFP 2017, please contact Eve Everette, AFP assistant director and festival curator, or Drew Kahn, professor of theater and AFP director.
