FiveTwoEightO: Neighborhood stories, arts and dialogue

This 2008 project, which I co-created and facilitated with a friend, Denver mediator and story facilitator Daniel Horsey, was funded by a Case Foundation Make It Your Own grant and sponsored by the Institute on the Common Good at Regis University. It included the participation of numerous Regis students, community nonprofit organizations and community members… from homeowners to renters to one homeless couple. We did five events; each event featured two components (storytelling and artistic responses) and concluded with eight of the neighbors’ stories presented onstage and the artists’ (poets, painters, musicians, monologuists, choreographers’) work, followed by a dialogue circle (the “O”)
