The Metro Film And Arts Foundation, with generous support from the J & J Arts Initiative, presents Breaking Down Walls, an evening of animation, dance, music, poetry and theater, at Fort Mason Center For Arts & Culture. Breaking Down Walls showcases the artists who have been selected to create and debut new works that focus on the theme of “Breaking Down Walls.” The Breaking Down Walls project highlights art as a common ground for recognition and celebration of our shared humanity.
