Berkshire-based artists and community leaders will spend two weeks in July creating a collaborative performance that illuminates marginalized narratives, breaks down regional silos, and deepens connections through creative practice. The work, shepherded by NYC-based Angela’s Pulse, will be performed on both the Inside/Out stage and at the Berkshire NAACP’s 45th annual Gather-In on July 28 in Pittsfield. Grounded in the People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond’s principles of Undoing Racism & Community Organizing and Urban Bush Women’s Entering, Building, and Exiting Community framework, the Angela’s Pulse team of artist-organizers—MK Abadoo, Matthew Dicken, Paloma McGregor and Rosa Navarrete—spent the first half of 2018 on a listening tour of Pittsfield and surrounding communities. Beyond July, outgrowths of this work will be woven into locally generated events, seeding possibilities for future visioning and organizing. This work was commissioned by Jacob’s Pillow, in partnership with the Working Cities initiative, and made possible by funding from the Ford Foundation.
