We are thrilled to announce the virtual screening of Rites of Passage: 20/20 Vision– a walk-through installation performance celebrating the lives of Women of Color.
Set inside a historic Women’s Club mansion in Pittsfield MA (The Whitney Center for the Arts), each of its 21 rooms represented a stage or theme of initiation in the lives of Black, Indigenous and Immigrant Women of Color (BIWOC), using multimedia art and performance. Rites of Passage: 20/20 Vision took place over 5 days this August 2021 with 1000 attendees, and over 65 collaborators from around the US.
As a singular and groundbreaking work of art & activism by BIWOC, Rites of Passage: 20/20 Vision has been featured in Ebony, the WAMC Roundtable, AlbanyTimes Union, By The Way Berkshires and The Berkshire Edge.
For those who could not see the live in-person event, our virtual screening of the house, followed by a live artist talk-back, will take place on Friday November 5th at 8pm ET.
Links for live streaming on YouTube and Facebook will be released on October 30th on our website https://www.ritesofpassageproject.org/2020vision and on the Rites of Passage Facebook page.
