One way to start a conversation is to use a discussion of Monument Avenue & Grace Park as a platform to tell our own stories and aspirations. In prose & poetry, art & music, stage & screen, we can find new and innovative ways to approach difficult subjects.
When it comes to new monuments in Richmond, whose story needs to be told? What does his or her new monument look like? How do we give them the voice to tell their story? What was Virginia like in their day? What can we learn from their lives?
GraceParkRVA.org challenges schools, churches, children’s services groups and the Richmond art community — how do our children and grandchildren see the monuments? What can they teach us?
Would love to enhance GraceParkRVA.org as a platform to share neighborhood creativity.
