KQED LIVE: Bay Curious National AIDS Memorial Walking Tour

November 4, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)
$25

Choreographer Andrew Merrell

The KQED podcast Bay Curious is dedicated to answering questions and curiosities about the Bay Area. A listener asked about the history of the National AIDS Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park…so we made a theatrical walking tour to dive deep into the stories behind the memorial garden.

Journalists will take small groups on a guided tour, where they’ll tell you about the formation of the memorial. Along the way, pop-up performances will reflect on the people who are remembered in the space. Featured artists include:

KQED led in-depth interviews with activists, survivors, and loved ones who are integral to the grove. We spoke with the AIDS Quilt Conservator, an activist living with HIV, a young gay man whose uncle passed away in the 1990s, the CEO of the memorial, a social worker, and longtime grove volunteers who lost their children to the epidemic. Their stories are reflected in the dances and music you’ll see during the tour.

Space is limited.
