In hopes of planting a vision in the heart of Winchester, one that believes the spirit of the past can be redeemed and our future, as fellow citizens, more richly nurtured, The Greater Clark Foundation and Clark County Community Foundation have joined together to bring I Was Here to Clark County. The mission of the project is two-fold to create a memorial to those who were sold into slavery and in doing so, to seek a path beyond who we were and move toward a vision of who we could be. The project aims to instill a deeper understanding of our common humanity and to create a means to “see the world with different eyes”.
This event is free, but attendees must register.
In conjunction with this event, an on the street museum walk and community conversation will be held on Saturday, March 16, 2019 beginning at 9:30 AM at The Winchester Sun. The event will conclude at Leeds Center for the Arts for a community conversation at 10:30 AM to learn from each other and move forward with purpose in an effort to grow within our community. Tickets for the community conversation are available on our website.
