Created by Skywatchers and featuring Choral Director Melanie DeMore with Jennifer Johns, Valerie Troutt, Inéz García de Arco, Chibueze Crouch, Peekaboo, Maya Nixon, Jennifer Johnson, Afatasi and Dilpreet Anand

Tickets: $20-$100 sliding scale - Pay what you can / Pay what you will

Towards Opulence, the Opera is part of an ongoing act of creative resistance and imaginative reclamation. Skywatchers believe that Tenderloin residents, and other marginalized people, are the truth tellers of our society, akin to the mythical Cassandras. By breathing life into often overlooked or discredited truths, we remember our interdependence and expose the roots of power and oppression. An act of bold reclamation, Towards Opulence invites us to conjure and claim our most audacious and glorious selves and step into a future where we truly belong to each other.

6:00 pm: Vision, Peer-led Support Group (online)


Jun 3

Vision runs on a 12-week cycle of topics based on Hannah Fairbairn’s 2019 book, When You Can't Believe Your Eyes: Vision Loss and Personal Recovery. We discuss different topics and share experiences, thoughts, and knowledge. We are people with similar experiences who genuinely want to support one another in all aspects of living independently with our changing vision. Each week the topics are independent, so you can join the group at any week. Reading is not required. However, if you would like topic details beyond our discussions, please refer to the book which is available on Braille and Audio Reading Download (DB C11619).

June 3 Chapter 5 guides individuals through accepting and adapting to vision loss, emphasizing the importance of vision rehabilitation training for regaining independence. It covers timing for training, available options, and essential skills such as communication, home management, orientation and mobility, and social interactions.

June 17: Chapter 6 Learning to be Assertive with Sight Loss: Assertive speech is vital for communicating needs and securing assistance. Building self-esteem and self-compassion is crucial for restoring identity and confidence. Educating helpers and practicing assertiveness help maintain autonomy and manage interactions confidently.
