In collaboration with Diversity University and Gibson Guitars, Raechel Rosen ’15 and JJ Mitchell ’15 invite you to plan The Wesleyan Humanity Festival:
Inspired by the intellectual musings of Professor Dar Williams, the Wesleyan Humanity Festival is a one-day musical celebration in solidarity against bigotry, racism, and social divisions.
The festival will take place this April and intends to bring all members of the Wesleyan and greater Middletown community together through music, art, and spoken word poetry. The festival will encourage dialogue about—and action against—the existing class, racial, and social rifts that exist within the community. The Wesleyan Humanity Festival will bring passionate, politically aware, and socially conscious artists who have united audiences in the face of difference. The festival will include both performance and direct dialogue. Through this day, we hope to inspire an open attitude and to continue the growing movement towards understanding how to create an inclusive community.
