This fall, North Regional, Sumner and Webber Park libraries will offer “Moving to Heal,” a series of programs intended to hold space for people to process trauma, connect with others and gain tools to heal.
The neighborhoods served by these libraries in north Minneapolis have experienced many traumas recently, and face ongoing trauma caused by institutional and systemic racism. With “Moving to Heal,” the community is invited to see and use local libraries as spaces to promote healing. Centering the leadership of communities most impacted by trauma, programs are offered in partnership with Black program providers, artists and other practitioners who live and work on the north side.
Individuals, families and groups of loved ones are invited to pose for a photographic portrait. All groups will receive one framed photograph. Spots are limited; register in person at the library in advance of the program.
All programs are sponsored by ReCAST Minneapolis.
