Celebrate local artists. Prevent HIV.


July 26, 2012



At The Damien Center, we work hard to prevent the spread of HIV. But we also work hard to have fun while we're at it. This Saturday night, join us for Damienpalooza, a one-of-a-kind festival that will showcase local talent while building awareness around what HIV is and how we can all work toward an AIDS-free generation.

For an easy $5, you'll take in local live music, dance, poetry, and original art while sipping on special Damienpalooza cocktails and learning what we do at The Damien Center. The historic Athenaeum Theatre will play host to this event, the first of its kind in our history. Here's a sneak peek at what's in store:

Contemporary fine art from Kuaba Gallery

Community partner tables and information

Performances by lead Bonesetters musician Dan Snodgrass and local jazz combo The Jazz Men from Outer Space

Choreography from Adrienne Jackson

Spoken word by Charlene White

A full-length work from new local dance company Create Freedom Dance Project

You'll also hear from Damien Center staff and other advocates about how they work to prevent HIV and promote healthy lifestyles. Learn what you can do to prevent the spread of HIV in your community while supporting local artists, community partners, and The Damien Center.

Join us for Damienpalooza, this Saturday night from 6 to 10pm at The Athenaeum!
