Sharing the Past and Present of HIV Through Archives and Performance

Co-presented by BAM & What Would an HIV Doula Do?

BAM partners with the What Would an HIV Doula Do? collective for an afternoon workshop exploring the role that speaking truth to power and other forms of testimony play in the ongoing response to HIV.

In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and out of consideration for the health of our audiences, staff, and artists, Living Testimonies: A Workshop has been canceled. We hope to reschedule this program at a later date.

To stay in touch with What Would an HIV Doula Do?, and for more information on upcoming programming, including an online community gathering on Tuesday, March 17, contact the collective at hivdoula@gmail.com.


How do you know what you know about HIV? What role does storytelling play in creating meaningful change? How can the act of witnessing the past and each other benefit everybody in the present?

BAM partners with the What Would an HIV Doula Do? collective to present an afternoon workshop exploring the role that speaking truth to power and other forms of testimony play in the ongoing response to HIV. Participants have an opportunity to engage through performed readings, workshopping material, and facilitated conversation in the story about how women living with HIV worked to save millions of lives by expanding the definition of AIDS in the early 1990s—and the role that history can play in creating sustainable and generative communities.

Supplies and information will be provided and no performance experience needed. This is a safe place for people living with and impacted by HIV.

To stay in touch with What Would an HIV Doula Do?, and for more information on upcoming programming, including an online community gathering on Tuesday, March 17, contact the collective at hivdoula@gmail.com.
