In Opportunities

An internationally renowned visual artist of African descent has been commissioned to produce artwork for Charlotte Street and is inviting those who have suffered direct or indirect gun violence to share their impact stories. The artist is coming to this project as a survivor of a shooting incident in Memphis, Tennessee, in January 2013. This project aims to draw attention to the indirect long-term consequences of the aftermath of shootings.

There will be a community forum and individual interviews in Kansas City during the week of July 18th. Those who are interested in sharing their stories are invited to fill out this form and send their completed surveys to [email protected].

The identities of the forum participants will remain anonymous. Only silhouettes will appear in the artwork. The artist will have a Counseling Psychologist on hand during the interview process.
