PRESENT TENSE: WRITING THE PAST TO RIGHT THE FUTURE
A timely panel discussion about current issues that are also important themes in Jeffrey Colvin’s debut novel AFRICAVILLE, including: social justice, police brutality, incarceration, and social protest. The panel includeD author Jeffrey Colvin; Shinnecock writer, actor and performer Andrina Wekontash Smith; Executive Director of Bridgehampton Child Care and Recreational Center Bonnie Michelle Cannon; Community Organizer and Activist Willie Jenkins; and Mental Health Professional J. Allanah Evans. Hosted by The Church's Executive Director Sara Cochran.
Thank you to our extraordinary panel, co-participant organizations and sponsors for the great weekend.
The mission of the Sag Harbor Church (The Church) is to
foster creativity on the East End to honor the living
history of Sag Harbor as a “maker” Village.
The Church will champion new and traditional technologies
through collaboration, education and outreach.
The Church is operated by Edge and Center, Inc, a not-for-profit public charity, EIN # 84-1866415.
Although we have almost completed renovation of the deconsecrated Methodist Church as a creative resource, we hope that fall of 2020 may be a safe date for opening to the general public, depending on the pandemic. Artists-in-residence will be invited as soon as possible, and will be chosen by recommenders rather than by open submission.
See our Plans page for more detailed information.
See our Behind the Scenes page for architectural progress reports from our architect Lee Skolnick.
