Add to Calendar   06/26/2018 12:00 PM 06/26/2018 01:00 PM America/New_York Narrative: If These Spaces Could Talk

 

When we speak of place, it’s easy to imagine and discuss the physical structures we inhabit - the parks, streets, and buildings we encounter every day. But while these physical manifestations of place are integral to the notion of placemaking, it can be argued that what is most powerful about place is not the structures themselves, but the stories we tell about them.

 

The stories that matter most are the ones we tell ourselves. What stories are we telling about Cleveland? Are we the Rust Belt or the Medical Capital? Are we a segregated city or one teeming with diversity? What does it mean if we’re both? How can these stories either hold us back through isolation or propel us forward through connection and shared humanity?

 

Join us for the final forum in our For the Love of Cleveland: The Power of Place series, a conversation in Public Square with voices from the media on how narrative contributes to a sense of place. The conversation among our speakers is just the beginning of this dialogue - a booth will be placed in Public Square where all can share and record our stories to be archived with the City Club.
