Artist fosters civic engagement

Via Richmond News:

I was excited when the editor suggested I write a column about an event held at Richmond City Hall called Eat, Talk, Connect, organized by Richmond Multicultural Community Services.

It was created and facilitated by Zoe Kreye, RMCS’s Artist-in-Residence who explores creative ways to use art to encourage civic engagement.

But it’s taken me over a week to put virtual pen to paper because although I think the event was both a great idea and a great success, I’ve been trying to come to terms with why it was necessary in the first place and what that says about the path we’ve laid from immigration to community inclusion.
