Sunday Streets: Tenderloin Museum + Skywatchers

Sunday Streets returns!

Sunday, August 20th, from 11am - 4pm, a mile of streets in the Tenderloin will be transformed into a car-free community space filled with free, family-friendly activities. Join Tenderloin Museum as we celebrate our neighborhood’s non-profits, community groups, businesses, and residents.

We’re proud to have partnered with Skywatchers, an ensemble of Tenderloin residents, founded in 2011, who come together and use poetry, music, and dance to share stories and life experiences from the TL. Skywatchers believes in the power of art and collective creative endeavors to transform lives, embody our interconnectedness, and infuse our lives with agency, possibility, and celebration. The Sunday Streets performance will feature excerpts from I GOT A TRUTH TO TELL (full performance coming to CounterPulse this October!), drumming led by the Skywatchers drumming ensemble, and solos by Dr. Dreame, Kim Mays, Lee Staples, and other Tenderloin artists.

Catch the performance at 1:30pm, outside 509 Ellis St., adjacent to Tenderloin National Forest.
