MAX Hosts Performances and Workshops at Crown Town Hall

Tuesday, October 25, 2016

MAX, the Mobile Arts & Community Experience, is in operation this week (October 23-28) in Romare Bearden Park in uptown Charlotte. Beginning with the Open Streets 704 festival on Sunday, October 23, MAX is serving as both a performance space and a community gathering space throughout the week.

Each morning begins at 8:30 am with a Crown Town Hall, a daily open discussion with City of Charlotte staff and special guests. The sessions continue with daily workshops where city staff address different topics, such as the Transportation Action Plan, the city budget, and how to apply for a Neighborhood Matching Grant.

During the late afternoons, 4:00 to 6:00 pm, the College of Arts + Architecture offers programming, including a performance of the Jazz Combo (Tuesday, October 25), urban circus with theatre professor Carlos Cruz’s Nouveau Sud project (Wednesday, October 26), a commedia dell’arte performance by theatre students (Friday, October 28), and “Your Charlotte,” an interactive community mapping and storytelling project led by architecture/urban design professor Nadia Anderson and School of Architecture students (Thursday, October 27).

All programs throughout the day are free and open to the public. See the full schedule below.
