About the Events

Join us for a series of in-person, outdoor performance events! Featuring an eclectic mix of scenes, monologues, spoken-word poetry and music, the events highlight artists who are using art to create dialogue and affect change in the world. Each evening has a different line-up of artists and content, which will be announced at a later date. Presented as part of the Playhouse Perspectives Series in partnership with The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center (HHC) and the Cincinnati Music Accelerator.
 

Health & Safety: Masks are required, except when seated in your designated space or unable to consistently maintain a distance of six feet or more from individuals who are not members of your household.

Seating: Bring your own lawn chairs or blankets for seating and comfort in your space. Seating will be in pre-designated areas which will be marked with an "X" for social distancing. You may have up to six people per space. The event is general admission, and spaces are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis beginning at 5:15 p.m.

Parking: Car parking will be available in a separate area from the performance and designated by cones and staff attendants. Please follow the instructions from staff as you enter to park.

For safety, food and drink may only be consumed when seated in your space with your group. We ask that you dispose of trash in the bins provided or take it out with you.

About the Cincy Upstanders Project

The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center (HHC)’s Cincy Upstanders Project aims to inspire our community to become upstanders through a city-wide art campaign, monthly programs, museum tours and training opportunities. "Upstanders are individuals who stand up for others and their rights. They fight against injustice and unfairness, and they use their character strengths to inspire action and become the best of humanity today. They are willing to sacrifice. Anyone can be an upstander, and now is the time to be one.” HHC features upstanders and their stories every month as they tackle complex issues and different forms of injustice.
