In celebration of Women’s History Month in March 2015 — a whole festival devoted to women’s stories, and our relationships with women.
Towne Street Theatre, LA’s premiere African American theater company and KCET, the nation’s largest independent public television station, have partnered to celebrate KCET’s 50th anniversary, and Towne Street Theatre’s commitment to the community, by hosting a special multimedia community exhibit during the opening weekend of the 8th Annual TST Ten Play Festival, March 14 & 15, 2015 at the Stella Adler Theatre, Hollywood.
The exhibit is a traveling arts and education kiosk which takes the public through historical touch points of the region, and KCET’s 50-year legacy of serving the interests of Southern and Central California audiences with high quality award-winning multi-cultural programming.
The interactive kiosk, measuring 84″ L x 84″ W x 84″ H, will prompt community members to answer the question: “How have women helped create a better state?” in honor of Women’s History Month. Some community responses will be showcased on-air and online at kcet.org/50.
“We are so pleased that Towne Street Theatre is hosting our community kiosk and helping to strengthen our region’s cultural fabric, allowing our viewers to become a part of the conversation,” said Mary Mazur, KCETLink’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are also grateful to our Community Advisory Board for identifying important locations in the city where the kiosk can be displayed, create a sense of community, and educate people about our history.”
Towne Street Theatre’s 8th Annual TST Ten Minute Play Festival, celebrates Women’s History Month at the Stella Adler Theatre in Hollywood, from March 14 – March 29, 2015.
