The WORD! Festival identifies and nurtures student writers who are engaging in multicultural themes and/or aesthetics, increases contact between the departments of theater and the communities of color on the respective campuses, and furthers Five College exchange through the mechanism of a rotating festival. The writers of the works selected to be presented each year receive an award of $100 from the Five College James Baldwin Memorial Fund.
We are proud and excited to host the 2021 online version of this event as part of our Rights of Spring Festival this year.
WORD! will be performed online on May 1 at 2 p.m.
WORD! is presented by MOSAIC: The Five College Multicultural Theater Committee.
