Be part of the ripple effect for peace!
Join ElevArte Community Studio and Changing Worlds as we kick off the springtime with a youth peace march in the Pilsen neighborhood. Our participation in the Ten Thousand Ripples (TTR) project comes at a crucial moment when violence in Chicago neighborhoods is on a rise. This is our way of contributing to peace efforts in our neighborhood by bringing community together through the arts.
We are encouraging youth, teaching artists, community leaders and neighbors to participate and express their wishes and desire for peace in our community. We will meet on the front steps of Dvorak Park, where our Buddha sculpture is located. From there we will walk to El Jardin de las Mariposas ( a 5 min walk), where we will have a drumming circle and decorate with prayer flags with our wishes for peace.
After we visit the Jardin we will walk back to Dvorak Park, and have a small reception with light refreshments. This program is part of the Ten Thousand Ripples initiative.
