Event Description:

Examine barriers that prevent meaningful conversations and practice new techniques to build common understanding through a collaborative art project.

What barriers do you need to break down in your life? What stops you from reaching out to engage in conversations with someone who is different than you? Divisions are fed by lack of opportunities to intersect across lines of race, religion, ethnicity, and political affiliations. This event examines barriers to connecting with others and will provide techniques for engaging in meaningful conversations. Small group art projects led by Joani Rothenberg will also provide an opportunity to discuss experiences, frustrations with past interactions, and hopes for more civil intersections. 

Free parking available in the church parking lot.

Limited to 120 participants. RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 2

Presented by IUPUI Senior Academy, Ebenezer Baptist Church, Butler College of Education, St. Vincent Art Therapy Studio, Center for Interfaith Cooperation, and North United Methodist Church.
