Voices HEaRd: Kentucky seeks artists for second annual performance event

Date and Time:
10/05/2017
N/A

Event Description:
The submission window for Voices HEaRd Kentucky’s second annual community event is now open. In collaboration with Eve Ensler’s One Billion Rising 2018 Campaign, the Voices HEaRd event brings together performing and visual artists to raise their voices against violence against women and the many challenges girls and women of all ages face. All event proceeds will support The Girl Project and a partnering local organization, which will soon be announced. Voices HEaRd is a weekend of community performances featuring local Kentucky artists as well as alumni from The Girl Project. Last year's event featured 47 artists from Kentucky (Lexington, Louisville, Lawrenceburg, Paducah, Versailles and Georgetown) and included spoken word, dance, visual art, singer/songwriters, and theatrical performances. “Our vision and plan for the future is to grow and become a fully developed and produced artistic festival, much like The Women’s Voices Theater Festival in Washington, DC,” Vanessa Becker Weig, director of Voices HEaRd and co-founder of The Girl Project said of this event in its inaugural year. All pieces and projects empowering women and supporting gender equality are welcome. Interested artists are encouraged to submit a proposal of their piece regardless of its level of completion. Voices HEaRd will feature artists of all mediums at Woodford Theatre, and a Second Stage series featuring workshops, panel presentations, and more slam poetry, singer songwriters and other works by local Kentucky artists. Deadline for submissions is October 5. Voices HEaRd 2018 will run February 23-25 at Woodford Theatre in Versailles. For more information and to submit a proposal, visit www.thegirlprojectky.org. Ticket prices and information will be announced soon. When available, tickets may be purchased by calling the Woodford Theatre Box Office at 859.873.0648 or online at www.woodfordtheatre.com.
