Breaking Conventions: Examining Our Streets, Culture, and Stories

Time: Feb. 7, 2022, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Location: Virtual

Part of the Syracuse Symposium

Part of the Syracuse Symposium series.

Syracuse Stage hosts Juhanna Rogers--a playwright, director, and activist--for this installment in a four-part dialogue (2 per semester) addressing political and humanitarian conventions on the basic right for housing in our community.

We take a look into urban spaces and the way of life as a manner to tell new stories that focus on geographic identity and how that identity is leveraged in underrepresented and under-resourced communities. In conversation moderated by Joann Yarrow, Rogers shares the power of placed-based storytelling in urban communities activating systemic empathy and accountability.

What are ways to ensure voices don’t get lost? How can our stories redefine current models of policy and community engagement?
