It’s a long way from Sierra Leone to Westport.
But one nearby company, and another local organization, are doing what they can to bridge the miles, and the cultures.
The children’s artwork and letters are currently being showcased at the Westport Arts Center.
This Friday at the WAC (6 p.m.), there’s a screening of the film, plus a reception, a Q-and-A with one of the Brooklyn students, and silent auction to benefit Schools for Salone.
For years, much of the news from Sierra Leone has been bad.
This news — and all the activity surrounding it — is very, very good.
(Tickets for this Friday’s film screening and other events are $10 for WAC members, $15 for non-members. To purchase tickets and view the silent auction items, click here.)
