Visions of Home

Visions of Home is a collaboration between Smear Campaign, a queer interdisciplinary multimedia collective consisting of Performance and Interactive Media Arts MFA candidates from Brooklyn College, and Bridges4Life, an organization built on helping the Trans and Gender Non-Conforming community by providing services to children in the foster care system, young adults, and surviving sex workers. Working with members of and people served by Bridges4Life, Visions of Home explores the themes of safety, family, sex work and community through an immersive, multimedia experience. This experience ties into Bridges4Life’s current fundraising effort to purchase a brick-and-mortar building to provide sustainable housing and workshops for the people they serve.

Audience members will walk through an interactive Vision of Home featuring performances, art, histories, and stories from the Black and Brown TGNC sex work community, culminating in a participatory ball. This multi-room experience will be open for audience members to explore from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM Friday, May 13th and Saturday, May 14th in the Abrons Arts Center Underground. To contribute to the creation of this production, please consider donating.
