Our Window of Opportunity (WOO) Grant serves as a means to fund time-sensitive opportunities that support the art for social change practices of Leeway grantees.
We are happy to announce June’s WOO grantee, Monnette Sudler-Honesty (ACG '15, 14, LTA '11) :
Monnette Sudler-Honesty was invited to collaborate with musicians from Cuba, Mexico, and South Africa to play bass guitar as part of a project called The Peace Train: Transcending Barriers. The Peace Train is an all-woman music and dance program that promotes cultural exchange, mutual respect, constructive engagement and empowerment. Singers from Northern, Central, and Southern California will meet with singers from across the border in Mexico. Participants will come together at the border on July 21 to link arms and sing as they parade from the border to Centro Cultural Tijuana (CECUT). Monnette will travel to the West Coast to rehearse and perform with the other musicians as part of a culminating unity concert at CECUT.
