In collaboration with Houston Methodist Hospital, the University of Houston Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts presents “Come Together Houston: A Community Arts and Health Partnership.” The free event performance series is funded by the CDC Foundation, and focuses on raising COVID-19 vaccine awareness through the arts in immunization hesitant Houston communities.
The series runs May 5 through July 23, and will feature four Houston artists: GONZO247, graffiti muralist; Mariachi Pumas, UH Mariachi ensemble; Outspoken Bean, poet laureate; and Urban Souls; social arts organization promoting creativity.
Members of the community will be invited to share and record their personal experiences with COVID-19 during each event, and those stories will then be featured on the Come Together Houston website.
