Urban Roots Story Gathering and Photo Exhibit

the other media group (omg) facilitated this project with the Urban Roots Youth Council. Together they developed a story and image gathering process to engage their identified East Side communities in conversation about their relationships to the Mississippi River and the natural world.

This project is a pilot for an ongoing effort to learn alongside our neighbors through community-led storytelling and artmaking and will inform the development of GRPI programs and projects to connect people to the river.

We are just getting started!

Below you’ll find the photos this project produced.
