Uncovered Discussion Series / Art the Community / Gary

In short: focused conversational pot luck!

Our inaugural Uncovered Discussion Series serial “Art Shaped Community” looks at relationships between growing communities within Chicago, Gary, and Detroit. We will investigate what challenges face each of these cities and how particular neighborhoods have responded and thrived. Within this conversation will be central themes of gentrification, dealing with abandoned properties, and questions of what makes healthy communities.

What issues are facing Gary beyond their abandoned building stock?  How does the relationship between Chicago and Gary impact the community and how can that be strengthened to help both grow?

It is the hope that through these discussions participants can uncover ways to improve their own communities. 

Bring a dish and drink to share and come ready with questions or thoughts on what makes a community.

The evening will be hosted by Samuel Love, organizer with the Central District Organizing Project (C-DOP) and founder and president of Bureau of Peace, Love, and Art
