"Tragic and senseless violence struck last night in the heart of our community, with many lives lost, and countless more wounded. Our thoughts and prayers to all of our LGBTQ sisters and brothers today as we make sense of these senseless acts.
"We are rescheduling our Art X Social Change Night event tonight to a later date and will have more updates as soon as possible. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused everyone. The show will and must go on another date when our community has had the time to heal and grow stronger than before."
Maybe you're not so great at organizing a protest or shouting at the top of your lungs into a bullhorn. That's OK. Creating social change isn't limited to chants and demonstrations. It can also be a powerful poem, a compelling design on a placard or a painting that captures the spirit of the movement. If that's how you like to make your mark on the world, check out Art X Social Change Night at Spacebar. This free event features different kinds of art media, including visual art, music and spoken word performances, poetry, dance and plays, focused around varying themes of social justice. Part of the proceeds will benefit ArtReach Orlando, a Winter Park arts outreach program that works with underserved children in Orange County.
Sunday | 4-8 p.m. | Spacebar, 2428 E. Robinson St. | facebook.com/spacebarorlando
UPDATE: In light of Saturday night's mass shooting, this event has been canceled. When it is rescheduled, we'll update again, but in the meantime, a note from the organizer:
