HURLEYVILLE - The Hurleyville Performing Arts Center (HPAC) will host the Second Annual Indigenous Women’s Voices Summit, a series of art exhibitions, artist talks, demonstrations, and live performances spanning September to November of 2021.
The events will bring together traditional teachings and contemporary minds to imagine ways forward for indigenous people and foster a sense of community between nations. While there is much talk about the trauma and suffering in these communities, their members are also growing, thriving and have a lot to share about how to find strength in laughter, joy and respect for other living things.
