Come learn about and inform our current community engagement practices and share your visions for the future. Join Artworks Trenton, Spiral Q, and Grounds For Sculpture staff as we gather to reflect on the experience of planning and creating our first public procession entitled Breaking Boundaries, Grounds For Gathering which took place on Saturday, July 29th. The procession was the outcome of a 3-week residency working in partnership with the Trenton community with the goal of deepening the relationship between Trenton, Artworks and GFS. Hence our current exhibition Spiral Q: The Parade, which spotlights 20 plus years of community lead public processions in partnership with Spiral Q. Join key stakeholders in the July 29th procession as we discuss expectations, surprises and lessons learned in the creation of this procession. How have relationships grown? What are the next steps to sustaining these relationships? All community members are welcome.
This program is in tandem with the exhibition Spiral Q: The Parade.
