Community peace play to debut this fall

Participants sought for Arts Action Heritage Project, with an information session taking place Sept. 16 in Abbotsford.

Do you want to change the world? Are you 15 years of age or older? Can you sing, dance, write or emote? Then head down to The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford on Sunday, Sept. 16 at 1 p.m.

The Reach will host a fun hands-on session on how you can be part of the 2012 Arts Action Heritage (AAH) Project.

Project artistic director Kat Wahamaa, dramatist/educator  Freddy Latham and dancer/choreographer Lorissa Arndt are gearing up for the creation and production of a community peace play to debut this fall in Abbotsford.

“We’ve already had great success with the first component of AAH this year – a visual arts exhibition entitled Postcards From The Edge,” said Wahamaa. “Some very thought-provoking art was created by 100 community members aged 14 to 60-plus.”

The AAH project, spring session, is related to Bearing Witness, an exhibition organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery, shown at The Reach.

“In addition to a call to folks that want to help write and perform in the play, we are also looking for some original music,” added Wahamaa.

For more information contact Wahamaa at aahproject@thereach.ca, or call 604-864-8087.
