Event Description:

Celebrate the voices of Indianapolis elders in a multimedia performance filled with the laughter, joys, tears, and wisdom of life.

The Indianapolis Museum of Art has joined forces with a diverse group of community partners to celebrate the voices of community elders. The Voices Project represents an intergenerational and cross-sector collaboration to harvest the rich stories and living histories of Indianapolis. This multi-stage process began with the youth of Kheprw Institute who interviewed elders from the Northwest Area Community and Flanner House of Indianapolis Senior program to explore how their hopes and dreams evolved over the decades. Know No Stranger then translated these stories into a multimedia performance filled with the laughter, joys, tears, and wisdom life provides after seventy plus years on earth!

This event will begin with a “light mixer” followed by a performance by Know No Stranger. A brief discussion between the youth and seniors who participated in this collaboration will round things out before audience members have the opportunity to document and share their own hopes and dreams.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVP requested.

Presented by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Flanner House of Indianapolis, Kheprw Institute/KI NuMedia, Northwest Area Quality of Life, and Know No Stranger. Special thanks to Writing Futures at Marian University.
