What is the significance of place? Why does it matter where we call home? How do we co-exist in a healthy way that cultivates community, harmony, and equity?
Join us on May 12th for our Spring Cypher: Place Matters- a community showcase featuring spoken word artist Jozer Guerrero, Queenz of Hip Hop dance troupe, local dancer Deanna Lowman, local youth performers, CSC's Social Imagination crew, and more! CSC's team will provide social and restorative justice frameworks to explore issues related to place, history and housing in Denver, and local artists will perform place-based art through hip-hop, spoken word, dance, visual arts and mixed media. Free and open to the public! Lunch provided!
Our Spring Cypher is the final event of our Spring Series, funded by a grant from Denver Arts and Venues, who we thank immensely! Our monthly interactive workshops cultivated community through dialogue, story-telling, and the arts as we explored what "place" means to us. Denver, like many cities around the country, is experiencing rapid gentrification and displacement.
We honor the land that we stand on and all those who have been here before us, as we talk about how it has changed, what those changes mean for different groups of people, and how we can move forward in responsible and equitable ways.
We would love for you to join us!
