Sounds of Conversation: Bringing Together Our LGBT Older Adults & Youth
In honor of Black History Month, SAGE presents “Sounds of Conversation,” a video featuring voices of SAGE Harlem Center participants and youth from community partners, The Ali Forney Center and the Center Youth. These groups all took part in an Intergenerational Storytelling Project sponsored by a grant Keith Haring Foundation.
“Sounds of Conversation,” allowed SAGE to bring LGBT older adults and youth together for an artist workshop that allowed each of the participant an opportunity to exchange personal narratives and create a theatrical piece for their respective communities. The workshops were conducted over a series of Saturdays in the summer of 2014 at the SAGE Center Harlem location. The theatrical piece was performed on September 11th at the Producers Club, which is located within the famed theater district of New York City. This video highlights the process and the performance of “Sounds of Conversation.” To view another video of this workshop, visit our YouTube channel.
