Let's Talk About Race: Hosted in partnership with WISH Cleveland and the City of Euclid, will include a viewing and discussion of the locally produced film UNDEREXPOSED, based on the experience of Cleveland teens and the nonprofit Shooting Without Bullets.
Youth artists and the producers of UNDEREXPOSED, will be present for an inspiring and educational panel discussion followed by open conversation. Dinner and one drink ticket will be provided (ID required).
UNDEREXPOSED chronicles the lives of ten teen artists as they find solace in art making and performing as members of “Shooting Without Bullets,” Cleveland’s revolutionary youth advocacy program. This coming-of -age story illuminates the beautiful struggle in their discovery of self in the midst of extreme economic depression and stark racial segregation.

ALSO SUPPORTED BY CRAFT BEER & CONVERSATIONS
Craft Beer & Conversations is an ongoing series of discussions that began in early 2017 as a way for people to engage in civil dialogue about topics we are sometimes afraid to discuss, in a safe, respectful, moderated space. Past events have included conversations about immigration and refugees and gender equality. Like Common Ground CLE, this is an opportunity to listen to different opinions and share your own story too. The goal of Craft Beer & Conversations is not to change how someone sees an issue but to listen, learn and grow.
