About Meet Us Quickly
Acknowledging the complicated, problematic, and honorable history of solidarity between Black and Jewish movements for social change, “How can Black and Jewish voices amplify the call for racial justice via an end to mass incarceration?”
Flyaway Productions premieres Meet Us Quickly With Your Mercy, the second in a trilogy of outdoor public art performances addressing the devastating effects of mass incarceration. Meet Us Quickly is presented in partnership with the Museum of the African Diaspora, Bend The Arc Jewish Action, Prison Renaissance, and through CounterPulse’s curated co-production program. It will take place on the exterior facades of CounterPulse and the Dahlia Hotel next door.
After each show, come on in to CounterPulse to see a visual art exhibit by artists working behind bars at San Quentin.
Supported by the Bill Graham Foundation, CA Arts Council, Creative Work Fund, Ear Hussle/Radiotopia, John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, MAP Fund, National Endowment for the Arts, New Music USA, Rainin Foundation, San Francisco Arts Commission, San Francisco Grants for the Arts, and Zellerbach Foundation.
