Here is some information about the event, provided by the organizers:
Issue as Muse is an annual, performance-based event that serves to raise awareness about issues of social justice around the world, introduce the Tufts community to different non-profits that are addressing these issues in the Greater Boston Area, and fundraise for the participating nonprofit organizations. Prior to the performance, there is a non-profit fair to allow students, faculty, staff, administrators, and community members to network with local non-profit organizations for future collaboration, volunteer, internship, and job opportunities, as well as to learn more about the organizations and the social justice issues they address.
The event is coordinated by Tufts Social Justice Arts Initiative, which works to incorporate and use the creative arts as a vehicle to advocate for, raise awareness and educate about, and empower those who suffer from social inequities, inequalities, and systemic, institutional, & interpersonal oppression.
