Announcing New Series

Write Around the Corner
Exploring Cross Cultural Expressions

WWf(a)C is excited to announce this special ten-part series, in partnership with other local non-profit and community organizations and with key support provided by ArtsWave.  Each program in the series combines reflective writing with a viewing experience that highlights various cultural traditions. 

Most programs will be held at a partner gallery or theater and consist of attending and viewing an exhibit, performance, play, collection, film, or other cultural representation. The experiences and suggested writing prompts are designed to be thought-provoking for written exploration. Writing offers an opportunity to deepen the experience, as does the discussion that follows the writing time. 

The goal of this series is to explore and consider a variety of cross cultural expressions, and to foster deeper understanding and awareness of different racial, ethnic and cultural traditions.

Confirmed series partners are Taft Museum (See  Oct. 6 program listing, below), Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park; Wyoming Inclusion Neighborhood Diversity Support; Cincinnati Art Museum, and Cincinnati Shakespeare Company.  Additional partnerships and dates to be announced, pending final confirmation.
