Wave Pool: A Contemporary Art Fulfillment Center, in partnership with Learning Through Art, Inc. and The Well, invites community participants to join them for a special Story Quilts Community Conversation marking the first celebratory day of Black History Month in Camp Washington!
Address: 2940 Colerain Avenue Cincinnati, OH, 45225
Story Quilts engages participants to share their truths from the patchwork of their lives, weaving stories creating a tapestry of reconciliation and resilience. Story Quilts provides a platform for LTA’s Arts Over ACEs Center (Adverse Childhood Experiences), to bring visual, craft and performance art together as a foundation to guide honest and open community conversations about systemic racism and social justice – leading to truth-telling and finding reconciliation in hopes of building more resilient people and communities.
The project’s creator, Kathy Wade, feels that, “Like so many cities in America, Cincinnati needs to come together to have a collective conversation about race and racism that can help us confront our difficult truths and find a way forward – to chart a future that is defined by truth, justice, and healing.
Story Quilt Community Conversations provide the opportunity for citizens and neighbors here in Cincinnati and beyond to join in a facilitated discussion to share their truths on systemic racism and solutions that we must all seek for reconciliation. During the event, you will also create a quilt square – with materials we provide – to visually capture your story and become a piece of the community patchwork quilts for resilience
We have a seat at the table for you!
