Event Details

This is an evening of art and activism in observance of World AIDS Day, with dramatist Bryan C. Jones and his powerful account of living with HIV/AIDS in this country, “AIDS…and I die slowly.” He also will report from this year’s World AIDS Conference in South Africa. Players from the Asante Children’s Theater in Indianapolis will give excerpts form The Declaration of Change. The African Gyil Ensemble, student musicians from Batesville, will provide the magical sounds of their gyil, instruments derived from the balafon, somewhat similar to the marimba. Charismatic DJ Ras Tuli will bring infectious Africo-centric popular music. Plus, there will also be an African Bazaar, which will support an HIV/AIDS collective in Kenya. Delicious appetizers will be provided by C4 and Chef Carrie. Tickets will be available at the door or in advance at View Point Books, online at www.artsforaids.org, or by credit card at 812-343-4949 (Granny Connection).
