Event Description

Open call. Give Voice. 
WPAA-TV, as a theater space, has joined with other theaters around the nation to give voice to being a safe space for all persons; inviting diverse opinion, dissent and argument and artistic expression optimistic that active listening facilitates and cultivates community engagement within the courageous exchange of ideas.
Do you have words to share (from 30 seconds to 3 minutes) as a citizen, ACTORvist, Nonprofit leader, or Preacher about hope, sanctuary, fear, diversity. Do you wish to inspire or merely share? Let us know. Performance level participants please PM Director Noël Ramos on FB or send inquiry via email to wpaatv@gmail.com subject BE A Light or just show up Jan 19th 5 PM at wpaatv and we will incorporate you into the community event as feels right for the gathered.
This will be LIVE TV from 5:30 to 6:30 PM followed by refreshments and gathering of more voice clips.
Nationally: Gathering outside of theaters on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, people will join in a collective, simultaneous action, together creating “light” for challenging times ahead. Inspired by the tradition of leaving a "ghost light" on in a darkened theater, these artists and communities will make a pledge to continued vigilance and increased advocacy with an ongoing commitment to work for social justice and equity in the coming years,serving these principles.

  • - Safety of persons, regardless of race, class, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
  • - Diverse opinions, dissent, and argument are not only tolerated, but invited.
  • - Active listening and courageous exchange are fundamental values.
  • - Collective action, activism, and community engagement, both within and outside the walls of the theater, are cultivated, encouraged, and supported
