PreEnact Indy

Saturday, October 5th 2019 10am-5pm


For one day, live in a perfectly equitable & culturally diverse Indianapolis.

PreEnactment theater envisions a neighborhood that OUGHT to be—just, equitable, and economically vibrant. Our stage is an entire three blocks of 16th Street. From the Monon to Andrew J. Brown. Every vacant lot/building, existing business, street lane and sidewalk is part of the stage.


An immersive learning experience

  • See a more diverse neighborhood economy — Set designers will build temporary facades on the vacant lots and spruce up the abandoned buildings.

  • Engage with actors — Actors will perform an equitable way of living and model a neighborhood that is revitalized, but is also inclusive.

  • Support diversity in film — The Harlem film festival & ImageNation will operate 3 “movie theaters” screening films by black directors.

  • Watch professional performers — 7 theater groups (Act A Foo Improv Crew, Asante Children’s Theater, Sapphire, Freetown Village, etc) are partners. 

  • Meet local change makers — 3 schools and 20 neighborhood groups are also participating.


Don’t just imagine… See for yourself:
