Celebrate the legacy of Just Above Midtown during an experimental evening of artist activations, short performances, and storytelling in response to the question, “What do you carry with you from JAM?” Connect with the people who made JAM a place that centered creativity, care, and support for artists and cultivated a wide and diverse public to engage and experience their work. Come on your own or bring your friends and family for food, music, creative prompts, and a chance to make new friends. Participating artists include Sydney Blum, Linda Goode Bryant, Maren Hassinger, Janet Olivia Henry, Ishmael Houston-Jones, Randy Williams, Tony Whitfield, and more.
