The State of the South: Montgomery
July 7 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
We are a group of creatives—actors, directors, teachers, playwrights—looking to define what it means to be Southern in today’s world. We want to be challenged in how we think about our culture and society.
It starts with a story—your story. Join the dialogue, tune in to the conversation, and rewrite the assumptions of the South. Leave knowing more about the folks in your community.
Through one-on-one interviews, group story circles, and town halls, the State of the South creative team seeks to answer:
Who is the South?
What is the South?
Where is the South?
Tell us your story. Share your definition of the South.
This free, one-hour discussion is hosted in a safe, inclusive space. People from all walks of life and of all shapes, sizes, colors, and capabilities are welcome.
While the conversation thrives on participation, all activities and discussions are optional. Wear comfortable attire and feel free to bring a notebook.
Coffee will be generously donated by Prevail Union Montgomery.
