Safe in This Place: A Franklin Avenue Theater and Dialogue Project and Crow Hill Community Association invites you to join us for a public performance and dialogue about what it means to be safe in this neighborhood

Thursday, March 8, 7:30-9:30pm
at St. Teresa of Avila Church
563 Sterling Pl. (at Classon) (map)

For 8 weeks, residents of Crown Heights, Brooklyn have used theater to engage in dialogue about what it means to be safe. They have raised questions about community, race, class, gentrification, power, police, diversity, and change. In this interactive public sharing of the project, the group members will perform pieces of theater and engage the audience in a continued dialogue about these questions.

Free! 
Refreshments will be served.
Open to all 
RSVP or questions to safeinthisplace@gmail.com or 347-762-9439.

Safe In Theis Place

For 10 weeks this winter, join your neighbors in using theater activities
to explore what it means to be safe in the neighborhood along Franklin Avenue.

 Free. All are welcome. No theater experience necessary.

“Safe in This Place” is a theater-based workshop series that will engage residents of northern Crown Heights – specifically the neighborhood around Franklin Avenue – in exploring the question: “What does it mean to be safe in this neighborhood?” It will culminate in a public event in March that will be designed by participants to share what we’ve discovered and extend the dialogue to more people in our neighborhood.

The workshops will be facilitated by three local artists who are trained in using theater and drama to engage groups in creative reflection and dialogue.  The workshops will be offered free of charge to adult residents who live, work, and/or socialize on or near Franklin Avenue between Atlantic Avenue and Eastern Parkway.

Dates: Every Thursday from January 12 through March 15, 2012 (Participants are asked to attend all 10 sessions.)
Time: 7:00-9:30pm
Location: Georgia’s Place, 691 Prospect Pl., Brooklyn, NY 11216 (corner of Prospect Pl. and Bedford Ave.)

There will be light refreshments at all the sessions.

No theater experience is necessary. Any interested adults (18 and over) are encouraged to attend. Join us!
