Friday Night Talk-Backs Have Returned!

Love! Valour! Compassion!We are bringing back our Friday night talk-backs! Join us on the first Friday of the run of each show for a chance to exchange thoughts and ask questions about the subject matter covered in the production you just saw!
Our first Talk-Back is tonight Friday, September 20 after Love! Valour! Compassion! when a panel of individuals from The Red Project here in Grand Rapids will lead us in discussing two living stories of individuals with HIV, explore what HIV/AIDS has looked like in West Michigan over the past 20 years – what has changed, and what has not, what support and education is available, and how we can better know, understand, and support our community.
The Grand Rapids Red Project
The Grand Rapids Red Project believes everyone should have access to knowledge and tools available to prevent HIV infection, and the treatment necessary to live with it, no matter who they are or where they are. In 2011, in addition to free information and education, The Grand Rapids Red Project distributed over 62,000 free condoms throughout the city of Grand Rapids.
