Arts + Social Impact: Community Solutions Through the Arts

$70 Registration available at the door.

Virginia Commission for the Arts is pleased to announce that the 2020 Art Works for Virginia conference will take place, again this year, at the Hilton in Short Pump.

We are excited to announce our keynote for the 2020 Conference: Bryan Doerries, Artistic Director for Theater of War Productions, who will be joined by his musical collaborator, Phil Woodmore.

Newport News native Bryan Doerries co-founded Theater of War Productions some 10 years ago, which presents community-specific, theater-based projects that address pressing public health and social issues. Since that time, the company has produced over 20 projects across the country, addressing war and mental health, racism and social justice, refugees and immigration, addiction and substance abuse, violence, and more. One of their pivotal projects was a production of Antigone in Ferguson, produced in 2018 at Normandy High School, Michael Brown’s alma mater.

Hear them speak about their approach to the work, guiding philosophies in identifying works of art whose themes reflect the identified community challenge, and their approach to collaboration and community engagement.
