Join Artists Rashada Dawan and Margaret Morris as we build a plan of action for creative collaboration in the neighborhoods surrounding South Shore Cultural Center. We invite you to participate in this event as a community storyteller. In this workshop, we will imagine what resources are needed to implement our vision and explore how this information can inform cultural policy and community quality of life.
This event will held at the South Merrill Community Garden at 7030 S. Merrill Ave. and in the event of rain will be rescheduled for September 27 from 3pm-5pm. The group size is intentionally capped at 8 participants and we ask all participants to observe social distancing guidelines and wear a mask.
The Cultural Asset Mapping Project seeks to identify and map cultural assets in 9 neighborhoods surrounding Cultural Centers in parks across Chicago while documenting and uplifting oral histories and strong memories from artists, cultural organizers, and community members who are stakeholders in your neighborhoods.
