Join the Rutgers Institute for the Study of Global Racial Justice for a celebration of Quilting Water, a global public arts project which stitches together the human connection with water through quilt-making and oral histories. We will share in this communal journey of witnessing the ties between our ecological realities, cultural and spiritual rituals, and the literary forms hidden within our everyday conversations.
Featuring celebrated lead artist for Quilting Water Renata Merrill and acclaimed writer and art quilter Jacqueline Johnson, and a special performance by the Resistance Revival Chorus, a collective of women, and non-binary singers, who join together to breathe joy and song into the resistance, and to uplift and center women’s voices.
The event will take place on Friday, November 17, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., in the Walter K. Gordon Theater. Registration is required.
