'LOVE IS THE MESSAGE" This project will promote understanding of the human experience thru comedy and spoken word artists. The event will be held on February 20, 2021. It is scheduled for an in person and online audience. The Jean McDonough Arts Center’s (JMAC) Brick Box has allowed the showcase to be held there. JMAC has an online viewing platform thru streaming service Venmo. The targeted audience are communities of America who are suffering hatred, bigotry and victimization by institutional forces that promote fear and hatred. The audience may feel they have no alternative than to match hate with hate.
The project will benefit the community by providing reprieve from the hostilities demonstrated in the political climate we are in. The theme of Love is eternal and will stimulate the cultural vitality of the community for years to come; illustrated in future policies, programs, and political platforms. The community of Worcester would benefit from viewing the performances of those who can vocalizing thru comedy and spoken word how the arts can drive a community to Love, Laugh, and Learn. As Dr. King stated during the fight for civil rights - only love can drive out hate. The public benefit is a voice of tolerance bringing public conversation to a level of trust and understanding not fear and hostilities.
