Enrich Evanston believes that the arts can be a tool for educating the community and provide a bridge to bring our divided communities together. Enrich Evanston through the arts is a free community workshop for all arts groups, artists and everyone who loves art, to learn what has divided our communities historically and how the arts can help bring them together today.
Dr Gilo Kwesi Logan and Dino Robinson will take an Evanston history perspective to lead us beyond diversity, deepening our racial/ethnic awareness, knowledge and understanding.
All are invited to lend their voice and their creativity to the conversation on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 6 p.m., at Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, 1655 Foster St. Refreshments will be served and childcare provided.
Enrich Evanston is a collaborative organization formed in 2015 to address issues of diversity and inclusiveness in and through the arts. A key component of the work of Enrich Evanston is to provide racial equity training, as well as to provide a safe and collaborative forum to discuss issues of diversity and inclusion. We will continue to learn together from our shared experience over time and hope to achieve more though this collaboration than we might individually. Founding organizations include Actors Gymnasium, Evanston Dance Ensemble, Evanston Symphony Orchestra and North Shore Choral Society.
