RE:CLAIM Rooted Exhibition: Community // Love // Abundance // Intergenerational // Multiplicity

About this event

The RE:CLAIM project is a collective of artists, advocates, and movement builders seeking to honor the complexity and diversity of the community impact of the criminal legal system as it affects youth, adults, and families. The layers of the immersive installation offer audio and visual arts as a catalyst for visioning practices, and resources supporting the wellness and safety of our neighbors.

The exhibition events will take place at the Washtenaw County Court House the evenings of September 15, 22, and 30 from 5:30pm – 8:00pm. The artwork will remain in the courthouse for 8 weeks.

The organizational leadership of RE:CLAIM is: Youth Arts Alliance, Interfaith Council for Peace & Justice, Washtenaw My Brother's Keeper, Amplify Project, and Title Track. Working in partnership with the Washtenaw County Trial Court, these organizations will collaborate with many organizational partners, artists, musicians, and culture makers to participate in this exhibition and programming series.

September 15th is RE:CLAIM: IMMERSION. Join us as we celebrate the opening reception of RE:CLAIM! An evening of stories, music, dance, history, poetry, and immersive/thought provoking art. The evening will consist of ambient sounds by Amplify Fellow, Ki5 Loops (Kyler Wilkins), the release and performance of the second album from the Washtenaw My Brother’s Keeper supported Formula 734, spoken word performances by Staying Power poets, as well as dancer, choreographer, and artistic director Gina Danene Thompson’s world premieres of two dance performances entitled ‘Did You March, and if so Why?’ as well as ‘DEARLY BELOVED’. This display will layer dance and seemingly contrary artistic forms to create an emotionally immersive experience. The effort combines 30 dancers, poets, and musicians of all ages and genres to create two separate experiences.

September 22nd is “What If We Were All Free?” hosted by the Interfaith Council for Peace & Justice as part of ICPJ's Compassionate Community Conversations program to build greater empathy and understanding within our communities, even when we hold different viewpoints. Providing ambient sounds and vibes will be 'The Chill Place', a multi-media production house, focused on bridging the gaps between all demographics of people.

September 30th is 'Soundwaves and Moods' During the final evening installment of this series, we welcome a number of musicians and artists focused on making the closing of our programming series complete and memorable. We are very honored to welcome the stylings of John E. Lawrence, Dani Darling, DJ Khlonez; with live painting by Asha Jordan (Jordan Nik Art).
