#BeALight January 19

On January 19, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. in each time zone across the country, members of the theater community – from Broadway to regional theaters to high schools and colleges and community theaters – will come together to launch The Ghostlight Project.


ASP will be part of TWO Ghostlight Project gatherings:

  • Outside the Arts at the Armory: gather by 5:20, vigil outside at 5:30 for a few minutes.
  • At the Boston Center for the Arts in the South End: gather at 5:15, stand together with other arts organizations at 5:30, more free activities inside the Cyclorama.
  • Click “going” on the event page here


Don’t forget to download and print your posters and multi-lingual action statements here!



Gathering outside of theaters on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, people will join in a collective, simultaneous action, together creating “light” for challenging times ahead. Inspired by the tradition of leaving a “ghost light” on in a darkened theater, artists and communities will make or renew a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation, and compassion for everyone–regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability,  age, gender identity, or sexual orientation.


January 19th is a moment of gathering within a larger resistance to intolerance at all levels. We aim to create brave spaces that will serve as lights in the coming years. We aim to activate a network of people across the country working to support vulnerable communities. This is not a substitution for protests or direct action, but rather a pledge for continued vigilance and increased advocacy.
