With the upcoming 10-year anniversary, The 9/11 Arts Project is positioned to provide local forums for extending the dialogue, sparking community engagement, and inspiring creative expression. Our mission is to use the arts to connect our diverse community and to catalyze a citywide healing discourse.
This citywide project will kick off a "year of heaing," with multi-venue and multi-genre events to take place around the anniversary and throughout the year.
As we approach the anniversary and continue to search for new ways of healing, we must explore greater avenues for connection and understanding. The 9/11 Arts Project welcomes events and programs that span creative genres including dance and literary performances, art exhibitions, facilitated dialogues, concerts, theater, interfaith services, film screenings, etc. Project events will be promoted as part of a united dialogue and will focus on such themes as social justice, multiculturalism, religious tolerance, art activism, individual healing, national trauma, and community engagement.
