Join us for the 10th Annual Hope Out Loud Peace and Arts Festival on September 11, 2011 from 1 to 5 pm as we all Hope Out Loud that a peaceful world is possible. Hope Out Loud, which began in 2002 as a response to 9/11, has grown to become a shared call for renouncing violence and developing peaceful conflict resolution in our towns and in our world, for social justice and economic equity, and for a sustainable presence in our environment.
Hope Out Loud is a celebration of the creativity and vibrancy of Connecticut’s advocacy, service, activist and arts communities committed to peace and social justice providing inspiration for renewal and recommitment. It’s been 10 years since 9/11 and the need for peace in our world and in our communities is even greater.
Plan to be a part of this year’s Hope Out Loud Festival. As peace and social change movements have evolved since the Festival began so have the challenges of maintaining the Festival. This includes funding the event. We are all volunteer driven and work to keep expenses low. We need your help. There are many ways you can support the Festival. Be a sponsor, promote the event, plan on attending, have a table, become a volunteer. Hope Out Loud is an opportunity for you, your organization, its members, friends and family to network with other people working to create peace and social justice. It is a chance to reach out to others who are interested in knowing how to get more involved in working together towards common goals.
Hope Out Loud has moved. The Festival will be held on the great lawn of the Church of the Good Shepherd at 155 Wyllys Street in downtown Hartford – easily accessible from I-91 with off street parking available. The Church has plans to install the sculpture ‘Silent Wishes, Unconscious Dreams and Prayers ...Fulfilled’ – a work created in 1996 to help community people reflect upon and heal the pains caused by inner-city crime with the hope of preventing more killing – during the Festival preceded by a children’s peace march. We look forward to creating a day of art and activism in our new location and want you to be there. Good music and spoken word performance, inspiring speakers, more than 40 tabling organizations providing information and opportunities on how to create social change and fun, family activities for children of all ages. Free speech is encouraged!
Make peace happen. Become part of Hope Out Loud. See the ‘How to Help’ form or visit our website – www.hopeotloud.org to learn more about joining Hope Our Loud. Be there on September 11th. Make peace happen.
