Event description

Description

"Rather than our differences act as a source of division, they can be the source of our collective strength." - Speaking Down Barriers

Join us for an evening of spoken word poetry and community dialogue about race and difference in Muskegon County!


THE FIRST COMMUNITY GATHERING INITIATIVE EVENT

During this initial Community Gathering Initiative event, facilitators will guide a community conversation to create shared learning and meaning, exploring issues of diversity and inclusion in a new way through art and the spoken word. Speaking Down Barriers consultants will be here in Muskegon to teach and facilitate a Muskegon County community discussion on our concerns and needs to bring about more racial harmony.


WHAT IS SPEAKING DOWN BARRIERS?

Speaking Down Barriers is a nonprofit from Spartanburg, South Carolina whose vision is to “transform our life together across our differences by facilitating community dialogue, training, performances, and consultation." They are coming here to equip local spoken word poets and facilitators to carry out this powerful process here in our own community.


DON'T MISS IT!

Don't miss this groundbreaking event that will transform our life together across our differences of race, class, sexual orientation, gender, national identity, and religion.
