Artivism: Olivia O, The Musical: A Cross-Border Exploration of Art and Human Liberation, with Jessica Carmona, Diane Currie Sam, and Gil Yaron

Be part of an interactive discussion with inspiring Latinx storyteller Jessica Carmona and her creative team: playwright Diane Currie Sam and composer Gil Yaron. Explore how we can “Welcome the Stranger” with theatre, music and storytelling.

Enjoy an excerpt from “Olivia O, The Musical”, a theatrical piece that explores the impact of family separation policies at the US border through the eyes of a young Guatemalan girl, Olivia Oritiz, and her American aunt (who is waking up to the realities of the harsh US immigration system).

A movement with committed social artivists, Artivism: The Power of Art Social Transformation, grew out of Illuminations of Social Imagination: Learning From Maxine Greene, (Dio Press, 2019), edited by Teachers College alumni Courtney Weida and Carolina Cambronero-Varela, and Dolapo Adeniji-Neill, of Adelphi University.
