STOOP: “Our Spring” in the Mission
April 1 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm| Free
“Our Spring” in the Mission: Through music, art, and song, we reflect traditions of protest and resilience inspired by the popular demonstrations in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan between 2010 and 2013.
Mission Stoop Fest (STOOP) is a civil society arts experiment that transpires on the front stoops of local residences, where traditional and contemporary artists perform and where local residents share stories and histories. The front stoop represents a literal threshold between the public and private spheres and is a historic site of spontaneous community interaction and exchange. Occurring during the day on the same bi-monthly dates as sister-project, Mission Arts & Performance Project (MAPP), STOOP will provide a program and a map of multiple neighborhood stoops where performance and storytelling will unfold simultaneously.
