We congratulate Ryan Travis, the theater professional who continues to stage and curate great plays around the tenor of our times. His latest offering is “Drafters, a parable,” which uses local actors to create awareness about domestic violence from a perspective of prevention.
“Drafters…” has two more shows this week. Bob Brophy and former councilor Charles Anderson performed a brief excerpt during yesterday’s Vera House event.
Here’s an interview we did with Travis last year.
Weems also talked about an upcoming collaboration with architect Walter Hood.
Maurice Cox served as National Endowment for the Arts Design Director and supervised the Mayors’ Institute on City Design (MICD). He was also named a “Master of Design” by Fast Company Magazine.
MICD East, which is meeting in Syracuse this week, prepares mayors to be take the lead as designers of their cities.
