June 28th 7pm-8:30pm

In partnership with DC Justice Lab, Delicious Democracy, and the Kennedy Center Culture Caucus

So often, we don't know how to affect change or build power. How can you make your voice heard in local policy? How can we use theater and performance to more meaningfully advocate for our communities and shape change? Join Voices Unbarred, DC Justice Lab, and Delicious Democracy in an interactive session of exploring these questions, some current criminal justice issues, and how the formerly incarcerated participants of Voices Unbarred are using theatre to make their voices heard.

September 30 - October 2, 2021

In partnership with Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage Summer

We have all been moving through a time of deep release, healing and transformation. This time has asked us to tap into what gives us freedom in the midst of devastation, what brings us joy in the process of change -- what reminds us that as a people we are unbound --ready to use everything to thrive. The Mumbo Connection explores the true heartbeat of DC's culture through socially engaged art, gogo music, theatre, murals, and more. This community activation aims to bring the families of DC and the DMV together to celebrate native life, Black and brown liberation, create together, and experience art and stories from the community. This is freedom--the real DC--The Mumbo Connection.


Coming Soon!

Come see an original performance created and performed by men who were formerly incarcerated. This performance will explore the issue of solitary confinement. You'll hear personal stories, learn more about the experience, and join in an active discussion of change.
