PACE's First and Second Community Meetings

PACE held its first community meeting lead by artist Josh Graupera! The meeting took place at Crispus Attucks on June 25th. Community members that participated created a timeline of their lives structured around moments that have shaped who they are today through collage, drawings, and creative writing.

Graupera also introduced a new community tool, the community dream map. On this map community members were able to write down things they wish to see in their community, such as art therapy and a green thumb community team.

Hillrise Apartments at Lancaster Housing Authority held the second PACE community meeting. The art making activity asked community members, what is the identity of the neighborhood? A life-size human silhouette was decorated with the “make-up” of the neighborhood. Family, safe environment, collaboration and culture are just some of the ideas that community members felt the Southeast encompasses. Check out these pictures from the first two meetings...
