Description

Join Artists Rashada Dawan and Margaret Morris to honor creativity and culture in the neighborhoods surrounding South Shore Cultural Center as part of the Culture Asset Mapping Project (CAMP). We invite you to participate in this event as a community storyteller.

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 August 16 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.
