Throughout the course of this 10-week collaborative art project, community members will devise a live storytelling performance from their experiences of healing the wounds of mass incarceration and systemic violence. Participants will explore the history of Afro-Indigenous circle-keeping practices, the mythologies of liberated cultures, and oral traditions as a path to sealing spiritual wounds.

Led by professional artists, participants will work together to create a compelling, dynamic art project that will be shared with the community and the public at an Open House on Friday, May 11th.

 

Participants are highly encouraged to attend all ten weeks.  Group size is limited and advance enrollment is strongly recommended.
