Creating a Welcoming Community in Bay View: stories and conversation
441 E. Lincoln Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53207
This event is FREE, but space is limited and advance registration is required.
Bay View is currently experiencing a lot of growth and change, making it the perfect time to reflect on our past, present and future. Let’s move the conversation from online message boards and come together to discuss the kind of community that we want to foster in Bay View.
First, we’ll hear 3 true, personal stories from Ex Fabula Fellows, community members who have crafted stories that explore race and equity topics. Then, attendees will reflect on those stories and share their own experiences in small group conversations facilitated by the event emcee. Finally, we’ll regroup to share ideas for next steps – and then adjourn for socializing.
The 2016-2017 Fellowship is supported in part by a grant from the Northwestern Mutual Foundation; a $20,000 grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation‘s Douglas L.P. Hamilton Fund, George and Evelyn Gay Family Fun, and Jerry L. Tollefsen and Jessica J. Suhr Memorial Kacynski Family Fund; and a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
