SUMMIT: Oscar Micheaux Film Screening


>> Thursday, March 21: Oscar Micheaux Film Screening
7pm @ VAE Raleigh

VAE is partnering with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema to create an evening of listening using multiple senses. Set as in interactive and immersive experience in VAE’s See(d) the Future exhibition, VAE is inviting our community to watch the Oscar Micheaux "Within Our Gates" a silent film from 1927 while musicians take turns improvising their interpretation of the score to the movie, culminating in a collaborative jam session at the end of the film. Tickets are $5


VAE’s annual summit brings together a diverse cross-section of the region’s creative community to listen, discuss, and collaborate around a timely theme. We want to challenge creative people to think about the impact their work has on communities, and to inspire and excite them to use their creative super powers for good!

This year’s summit is five days of programming connecting artists and arts administrators with community, resources, and new ideas! All of these thoughts and activities culminate into a full day of sessions, panel discussions, conversations, and networking at National Humanities Center on Saturday, March 23!
