The Performing Hearts project creates and foments live performance events that will build community through shared experience and dialogue about the diverse experiences of marginalized groups and people amongst us. Our community includes the locality of Palomar college and it’s surroundings, plus the virtuality of all those who engage with us via the blog.
The project is designed to empower participation on many levels from reading and posting comments, to creating your own event and reporting it on the blog with posts and or media. An event might be as simple as standing on a street corner with a sign or facilitating a classroom discussion. Perhaps an essay assignment, creative writing assignment or final projection a theme relating to the experience of difference. You might even be crazy enough to try a large-scale project that engages a broad spectrum of the community.
This Blog site is the hub that will connect all the pieces and collect the documentation.
