YOU WILL BE FOUND, Songs and Scenes Amidst Uncertainty

Streaming November 14, 2020 at 7:00pm (CST) through November 29, 2020 at 11:59pm (CST)

YOU WILL BE FOUND, Songs and Scenes Amidst Uncertainty is a revue from theatrical works exploring themes of loss, change, discrimination, faith, gratitude and hope. Dominican students and alums express what is on their minds and hearts as they traverse this unsettling time and contemplate their futures and the future of live theatre as an art form.

Whether listening to music, streaming shows, or reading books, millions of people have looked to the arts to enhance their daily lives and help them cope during this perilous time.

The arts are getting us all through this. And we need your help to get back to work.

Through social solidarity adhering to scientific guidelines, government assistance, and even small donations, we can save the entertainment industry from dismantling. Please consider your daily actions to be in the care of others, as well as contributing funds or deeds to one of these campaigns:

Chicago Artists Relief Fund

This fund, created by Chicago artists in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, allocates $300 microgrants. Applications are welcome from all artists; priority is given to BIPOC, trans+/nonbinary/queer, and disabled artists.

#SaveOurStages

Live entertainment venues were the first to close and will be among the last to reopen. NIVA (National Independent Venue Association) is a group of nearly 3,000 independent venues across America, banding together to lobby Congress for targeted legislation to help the live entertainment industry survive.

Globally, approximately 12,000,000 people work in entertainment production. The arts in the Chicago Loop alone are responsible for $2.25 billion (yes, billion) in annual economic activity. Profitable production houses from Broadway to Hollywood have had to permanently close their doors with many predicted to follow; and careers in which artists have trained, worked, and invested their whole lives are currently shut down and indefinitely pending.

Please help support the arts. We need you.
