AN HIV/AIDS Art/Ed Series

05:30 pm to 07:00 pm
The Venue

The Venue is pleased to partner again for this uniquely creative Program developed with Community HIV/AIDS Awareness Advocate Jesse Elkins and Friends! —
On August 21 Beginning at 5:30, EVERYONE is invited to hear, share and make art inspired by HIV/AIDS true stories contributed by local community members. Presenters will share their 5-10 minute stories about things they have seen, heard, or experienced about HIV/AIDS that affected their lives directly—No story to tell? COME ANYWAY… You’ll learn a lot just by listening! A way to create a more honest and cohesive community through sharing!
Everyone is invited to write out their story and weave it into a community-created textile. At the Venue you will be provided looms, yarn, tools, story-writing materials, weaving technique examples and help weaving!
Have you witnessed something you would like to share? Have you supported someone through a diagnosis, treatment or illness? Are you HIV positive and would like to share your experience? Want to challenge the community? Make us laugh, make us cry? Then don’t miss this event!
Over-the-top Refreshments will be served! (And if you attended Part 1, you know they’re outstanding!) You can come and go as you please—Arrive at 5:30, with or without your written story, mingle, write your story, make art, and make friends. Storytelling begins at 6:30 7:30/8:00. Art making is throughout the evening.
With Gratitude we acknowledge the sponsoring partners in the series have been Rainbow Bakery, Hopscotch Coffee, and Bloomington Bagel Company and Cardinal Spirits, and of course, THE VENUE.
Wanting to Share your Story? Send your written 5-10 minute story to jrselkins@gmial.com.

Wrapped in Love Yarn-Cutting Ceremony

06:00 pm to 07:00 pm on Jul 5
Monroe County Courthouse lawn (southeast corner)
https://middlewayhouse.org/2018-2019-wrapped-in-love-yarn-cutting-ceremony/

Join Middle Way House staff and supporters, including local fabric artists, tree sponsors, and special guests as we gather around the Middle Way House tree on the southeast corner of the courthouse lawn to recognize Domestic Violence Awareness Month and kick-off the opening of Wrapped in Love. This public art display raises awareness and funds for services to support and empower survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, and human trafficking.

Light refreshments will be served. Maps of the location of each of the sponsored trees will be available.

Stay tuned for updates on fun activities and special guests via our Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/237116200449417/?active_tab=about!

Just as Middle Way House wraps survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, and human trafficking in warmth and support, teams and individual fabric artists lovingly create wraps for each of the sponsored trees. Each tree sweater is sponsored by a business, person, or organization committed to helping Middle Way House provide meaningful alternatives to living with violence. Sweaters will remain on display for nearly six months, through March 1, 2019

If you, your business, or organization is interested in sponsoring a tree, please contact Sam Ujdak by phone: 812.333.7404 or email: development AT middlewayhouse DOT org.
