November 16 & 17, 2012
Annual Meetings of AAR and SBL
Chicago, Illinois

Events are held at the joint annual meetings of the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Biblical Literature. We hope you will join us for any or all of these events:

Friday, November 16

7:00-9:00 PM
SARTS will sponsor The Living News: SHELTER, A Staged Reading of a Play-in-Progress. The Living News: SHELTER gives voice to those hidden behind the headlines. A collaborative alliance of artists, journalists, and musicians is working with homeless men, women and children at Cornerstone Community Outreach, a shelter in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago, to create a unique theatre production that shares their stories - stories reflecting the lives of over 90,000 people living homeless in Chicago this year. The Living News: SHELTER is a conversation starter – a catalyst for community dialogue. Standing on the shoulders of the “Living Newspaper” productions of the 1930’s, created by the WPA's Federal Theater Project, The Living News: SHELTER mirrors their form, combining bold theatricality with a unique, collaborative creative process. A dialogue with Director / Editor in Chief Lisa DiFranza, cast and writing team will follow the performance of this staged work-in-progress.
Stage Two, Columbia College Chicago, 618 S Michigan Ave, Second Floor
