talk with our hands (1).jpg

A 4-part series of open discussion forums and community collaborative art making sessions taking place monthly from March to June 2018, at various locations in Asheville. Each session will feature a guest speaker and topics include Racial Equity, LGBTQ Equality, Interfaith Connections, and Immigration Reform. Participants are invited to share, listen and create in a judgement-free zone. The resulting artworks will serve as a reminder of how creative activity bridges gaps in experience, knowledge and understanding.

The series of pieces created from these collaborative making sessions will be made into a postcard set, and sold through Roots + Wings to help fund our Grace Eaton Scholarship Fund.
