Black History Month - Roundtable
For most of us, 2020 was painful, enlightening and changemaking. The worldwide reaction to the unjust, racially motivated murders ushered our country into a modern- day Civil Rights Movement in the name of Black Lives Matter. Meanwhile the Corona virus (Covid-19) claimed a heartbreaking number of lives, the majority of deaths disproportionately belonging to Black and brown communities.
As 2020 approached its end, and the numbers of Covid cases continued to increase, we experienced the consequences of an unfair, broken economy, we saw a new presidential administration voted in and witnessed an insurrection that threatened our democracy – white supremacy’s answer to losing an election. Now is the time for us to unite. Now is the time for collective movement.

What does SPACE mean to you?"
At the heart of The Cross Cultural Collective lies this question.
"Who uses a given space?"
"If you could change that
space, would you and how?"
"Who is welcomed there?"
"Does the space truly serve the needs of those that frequent it?"
Join us in exploring the importance of SPACE through conversation, visioning, poetry creation and art making. All artistic creations will be preserved on our COMMUNITY SQUARE: a 4ft x 4ft cube that functions as both a 3D gallery and a space for community to come together for conversation and art making.
The Cross Cultural Collective is a DESTINATION UPHAMS artist. This event is 1 of 3 events we will present this October and November. Learn more about DESTINATIONS UPHAMS here: https://www.ds4si.org/blog/2018/8/23/announcing-destination-uphams-artists
