Salon Series: InterGeneration AIR 2020 Showcase
Thur, December 3, 2020 - 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
Join us for a preview of InterGeneration, the documentary-in-progress that began in our 2020 Artist In Residence Teen Bridge Program with artist/filmmaker, Carolyn Shadid Lewis. Beginning with an ancient Wampanoag myth that accounts for our Boston landscape, a group of Boston teens and elders take the viewer on a personal journey through the city’s colonial past and inequitable present. From the perspective of mostly indigenous, immigrant, and black community leaders, artists, activists, educators and public health workers, InterGeneration processes our current moment through storytelling, letter writing and animation. Armed with their home devices, the teens create magical worlds from the elders’ stories with drawing, paper cut-outs, found objects, and their own bodies revealing universal experiences of anxiety, loss, and hope during a global pandemic and a national struggle for racial justice.
InterGeneration was generously supported by the Joe Kalt & Judy Gans Family Foundation, Linde Family Foundation, Maureen and David Moses Family, National Endowment for the Arts, New World Foundation, Plymouth Rock Foundation and general support from Mass Cultural Council.
This project is also supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit www.arts.gov
