Event Description:


Spoken word, visual art, dance, and music converge to showcase stories of historically silenced communities and the power of unity.

*The calendar insert in NUVO erroneously listed two addresses. This event is at The Church Within - 1125 Spruce St. 

The Indianapolis artistic community represents a diverse selection of people from all walks of life and backgrounds. This event serves to find and reflect on the convergence of artistry, culture, and tradition through poetic prose, rhythmic dance, and visual storytelling. By inviting creatives who represent these disciplines to form one united production, the audience will be able to appreciate that, although different, we each contribute to making beauty of this life experience. Featuring artists Beatriz Vasquez, Chris Pitts, Ess McKee, Uzuri Asad, 31SVN Street Dance Academy, Mina Keohane, and more!

Convergence will not only focus on performance but will also include a hands-on learning portion and time to interact with the performers.

Parking is available at The Church Within, and overflow parking is available on the street. 

Walk-ins welcome. RSVP's encouraged by Nov. 9

Presented by Stacia Murphy, Kheprw Institute, INAZ Dezign, Oldsoul Entertainment, Bringing Down the Band, IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute, and The Church Within.
