Facing Racism in Muncie is a project that will explore the impacts of racism and the meanings of race in people’s lives. Engaging with personal stories and evocative theater performances as well as dialogue, we will explore both the negative and positive aspects of race. Stories and programs will expose the harmful nature of structural or institutional racism, and reveal the ways in which our community can triumph over ignorance and act for positive social change. Facing Racism in Muncie will educate, inform, and encourage ongoing dialogue to mobilize community action.
Recruiting writers and storytellers is the first step. Please tell us about why you would like to be a writer or storyteller, and also how to contact you.
Writers will be selected and confirmed in early October. All writers will meet with Facing Project founders Kelsey Timmerman and J.R. Jamison on October 20 or October 24. Writing will begin in November and be completed by February. Selected stories will be performed at (a) community event(s) in November of 2016, and presented along with the final publication.
