Live Streams by our Active Volunteers
We regularly share news from our community on our social media. During this time of shelter-in-place, we are also sharing live streams of our Bread & Roses volunteer performers on our Facebook page. Follow us to see the latest videos.
Though our daily institutional shows are on temporary hiatus, we are working remotely and doing all we can to support our volunteer performers. We are so grateful for our volunteer performers and their dedication to providing live music and the performing arts to our isolated audiences around the Bay Area. We do our best to recognize all our volunteers throughout the year, but is is now more important than ever to support our performers.
We encourage everyone to “Follow” these performers on their social channels to be in the loop of more live videos and donate to their “Digital Tip Jars” via Paypal and Venmo.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your live streaming info if you would like us to share it with our community on Facebook during this time.
