Arts Advocacy Exchange
The HE[ART]LAND Arts Advocacy Exchange program takes early-career Kansas City area artists to different cities around the country to collaborate with local artists to raise awareness of issues unique to each location.
Assembly of Change
Atlanta, Georgia February 2020
HE[ART]LAND, in collaboration with The ACLU of Georgia, The New Georgia Project, AVANTGARTE, and GA State Representative Kim Schofield, put artists from Kansas City and Atlanta in conversation with policy experts, advocates, and community members to raise awareness about and fight against voter suppression.
Over the course of 3 days, we registered voters, learned about public policy from experts, wrote and performed a 30 minute sketch show specifically about voter suppression, and screened the documentary Suppressed: The Right to Vote.
HE[ART]LAND stories creates opportunities for local artists to form partnerships with organizations looking to produce original content.
Kansas Theatre Works
Kansas State University
For Black History Month, HE[ART]LAND founder Logan Myles Stacer partnered with Kansas State University's Ebony Theatre to write the play JAZZ DISTRICT for Kansas Theatre Works' Black History Month production.
