The Concordia University Community Lecture Series on HIV/AIDS presents “Thriving, Life, and Living: 30 Years of AIDS Community Care Montreal” tonight, October 5th, 2017 at 7pm in the D.B. Clarke Theatre, Concordia University.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary ofAIDS Community Care Montreal – SIDA bénévoles Montréal (ACCM) “Thriving, Life, & Living” will explore the past, present, and future of this essential HIV/AIDS service organization. The presentation will feature testimonials by representatives from different generations and departments of ACCM, and performances that include the re-stagings of selected scenes from the play ON LIFE AND LIVING (Casey Stainsby, Amy Collier and Adjani Poirier).
From the Facebook event page: “Based on interviews of past and present ACCM members, staff and volunteers, ON LIFE AND LIVING weaves together a story of the organization’s history using memories as a primary source. The play follows eight semi-fictionalized characters over a period of twenty-eight years as they recall their first encounters with the organization, experience some of ACCM’s pivotal moments, and grapple with the changing face of HIV/AIDS in Montreal”.
A reception will follow with light food and beverages.
