Focus Springfield Community TV is proud to announce that we will be presenting a new video, titled “Acceptance Starts With You”, at the Springfield Central Cultural District’s Art Stop(s) event! Our piece will be located at 1441 Main Street on Wednesday, August 2 from 4:30p-6:00p. View event details here.
Acceptance Starts With You is a short theatrical piece filmed by Focus Springfield and created by Chestnut Middle School South Students with guidance from Enchanted Circle Theater Staff. Through multiple formats of communication, including spoken word, music, theatrics, and more, these students ask us all to find the best in ourselves and others and be accepting of those different from us.
We can accept and understand everyone in our lives, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, finances, family situation, or background. Make the positive choice – Acceptance Starts With You.
