Stories of the Past, Stories of the Present: Honoring World AIDS Day
About the Event:
Join us on December 1, World AIDS Day, as The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway and the Gates Foundation Discovery Center host a virtual program to reflect on the impact of AIDS. There are approximately 38 million people currently living with HIV worldwide and millions more we have lost to the AIDS epidemic.
The program will include the dedication of the first completed artwork for The AMP by artist/poet Storme Webber. The program will also highlight the upcoming “Through Positive Eyes: My Photo: My HIV Story” exhibition at the Discovery Center, with artivists (artists + activists) who will each share their personal story of living with HIV. You will also learn more from community leaders about how to get involved.
