What is Making Amends?
Bedlam Theatre is partnering with performing artists Harry Waters Jr. and Molly Van Avery to embark on a series of conversations around the proposed Minnesota Marriage Amendment. Supported by funds from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, Bedlam’s Making Amends project is designed to broaden the conversation from a rallying cry of “Vote No” to the marriage amendment to a larger conversation around the meaning of family, commitment, and society for the entire spectrum of sexual orientation and gender identity. Throughout September, Bedlam, Harry, and Molly performed and led discussions with Minnesota residents right in their living rooms with the Making Amends Living Room Tour, followed by a joint performance at the Bedlam Lowertown on Saturday, October 6th and a day of Open Space Technology conversations on the 7th, together comprising the Pre-Election Convergence. Now join a wide range of artists, activists, and visionaries for a night of creative assembly curated by Nastalie Bogira as we recover and/or reimagine what’s next after the votes are in.
This activity is funded, in part, by appropriations from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund, and its arts and cultural heritage fund that was created by a vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
