We Need to Talk: Community Conversation & Documentary Premiere!

Stages Music School

Join us for the premiere of the first documentary piece of "We Need to Talk," featuring a Behind The Scenes "Inside Look" at the making of the music video "The Time is Now." Watch the music video, enjoy complimentary coffee & snacks from local businesses in our neighborhood, share reflections, share your story if you feel compelled, meet new friends and join in the conversation! We need to Talk is a movement using music videos and docushorts to build bridges and catalyze community healing. RiffRaff Arts Collective is creating sweeping, cinematic music videos featuring original music by artists within our community that have written songs about issues they are passionate about, or ways they see the world that they wish the community could open their hearts to. We are using these videos to stoke community dialogue, build relationships, and cultivate a culture of listening. The project aims to empower community members to tell their stories and raise their voices. Featured songs include themes of change and empowerment, and docu-shorts explore issues that inspired their creation. Find out more at the riffraff.net/weneedtotalk!
