Atlanta’s glo is moving online during the coronavirus threat, and has scheduled three ongoing events that can be livestreamed via Zoom.
“In this time when we can’t connect physically, it is important to remember that strength and unity can come in many forms to bring about a larger togetherness,” the company said in a press release. “We cannot think of a more proactive action right now than to continue to support and compensate our artists. While we are closed to live programs, our work continues.”
glo will present “people Movement SHOPS in your living room” from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesdays-Fridays. The program will be led by glo founding artist Lauri Stallings and is aimed at anyone who loves to move, or who wishes to love to move.
The “Youth gloPLAY” program is aimed at children and led by glo’s Mary Jane Pennington. It will be broadcast 4–5 p.m. Tuesdays and 10:30–11:30 a.m. Saturdays.
Starting Monday, glo will present “19 mornings: Poem-Songs” from 9:15 to 9:30 a.m. Mondays-Wednesdays. The program is “a virtual choir” led by Stallings that will use vocal sounds to bring a feeling of release and togetherness.
In times like these when we are separated by necessity, ArtsATL is more needed than ever. Please consider a donation so we can continue to highlight Atlanta’s creative community during this unprecedented period.
