The Walter Project - Matthew López & The AIDS Memorial
Published at : 06 Dec 2020
Inspired by the iconic AIDS Quilt and created in collaboration with The AIDS Memorial to commemorate World AIDS Day, we have taken Walter’s speech at the end of Act 1, divided it into 33 sections, and asked friends, colleagues, and acquaintances to record themselves delivering a short section. We call the resulting video “The Walter Project.”
In this year of loss, it is vitally important to continue the tradition of remembrance that began with the unveiling of the Quilt back in 1987. And while today we remember those whom we lost to AIDS, we hope this spirit will also extend to those we have lost this year to Covid, to police violence, and to the neglect of government and society.
