POST SHOW TALK BACK & RECEPTION

GGE & HOLLABACK: 7.16.08

We opened the floor to two amazing advocacy non-profits to see how our show fit into the larger picture.

 

VISION

Immediately proceeding the performance of STANDING CLEAR on June 16th, we held a post show talk-back and reception. The creative team behind STANDING CLEAR was joined by representatives from
Hollaback NYC
and Girls for Gender Equity.

Hollaback has been battling subway harassment via an online "out your harasser" campaign. You can write in your own stories of Subway harassment on their blog format and include a photo of your harasser to warn fellow passengers.

Girls for Gender Equity is a Bed-Stuy based organization committed to empowering young women to fight street harassment within their own community.

This was our chance get to the darker, underbelly of the subway. It's not all funny and beautiful. It can be a minefield, and we wanted a chance to expose some of that side. Both of these organizations work tirelessly to shed a light on something that happens every day and yet is often not taken seriously. We thought it was a perfect fit for Coffee Cup, as we work tirelessly to shed a light on the everyday interactions that are taken for granted. One might say, we are two sides of the same coin.

Tickets for this performance are $30,
and will include the FULL RECEPTION with open bar and hors d'oeuvres.

A PORTION OF EACH TICKET WAS DONATED TO GIRLS FOR GENDER EQUITY.
