Weeklong project includes May 15 Town Hall Session, May 16-20 Building Week, and May 20 Final Event
Climb aboard The Conch Ship! The Studios of Key West, with a crew of artists led by Chantal Pavageaux, invites the public to be a part of this one-of-a-kind art event, where The Studios will attempt the impossible – capturing the island’s state of mind in under a week as a live art performance event.
The whole island is invited to participate, and there are a number of ways to get involved in the weeklong series of events.
On Monday May 15, from 6-7:30pm, there’s a free Town Hall Conversation – a structured input session where snacks are served and anyone and everyone is invited to share their thoughts, dreams and fears for our island.
May 16-20 is Building Week, when the ideas generated during the Town Hall are creatively transformed into The Conch Ship. Volunteers are invited to drop in and help make the magic happen, committing as much or as little time they’d like. Creative skills are appreciated, but not required, and everyone is welcome.
On Saturday May 20, 6-7:30pm, The Studios presents The Conch Ship: A Community Powered Art Event. Part installation, part performance, and part social gathering, the public can experience the results of a week’s creativity, centered on the island we love, and then have some food and drink together to talk about it. Tickets for the final event are $10, and 100% of ticket sales benefit S.O.S. Food Pantry.
All events take place at The Studios of Key West, 533 Eaton Street. Project details and tickets for the May 20 final event can be purchased at tskw.org, or by calling 305-296-0458.
Made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys.
