Through Positive Eyes: Live ‘Artivist’ Storytelling

This real-time, interactive presentation of Through Positive Eyes will invite you to confront stigma and build empathy for the resilient spirit of those facing the challenges of HIV/AIDS. Local ‘artivists’ (artist + activists) Edward and Pat will share their personal stories about living with HIV, and encourage participants to join the efforts to banish stigma – a major roadblock to both prevention and treatment.
