Join Weaving the River in commemorating Juneteenth this Friday from 6-8pm at the Community Health Council of Wyandotte County. We are so excited to celebrate the Quindaro community with an evening of storytelling and music featuring Reverend Stacy Evans and the Allen Chapel Choir. Learn about the rich history of Quindaro, Allen Chapel AME and Western University.
If you can't join us Friday be sure to check us out for the closing reception June 29th 6-8pm when the Elder Statesmen of KC Jazz's Small Big Band will be playing.
This has been a truly amazing project full of so many great connections and stories. It's been a real treat to work with Jen Appel, Justin Border and Jillian Youngbird on this project. And it is impossible to express how much I've grown as an artist and a person through working together. My hope is that our work brings about positive change for the Quindaro community through acknowledging it's significance in our nations past.
Here's a few photos of us installing at the Community Health Council. If you can't make our receptions please swing by any time they are open to hear the soundscape and make a wish for the future of Quindaro. We will be releasing them into the Missouri river after all our installations are complete.
Weaving the River will also be at the InterUrban ArtHouse in Overland Park. Our opening reception is August 17th 6-8pm.
