Civic Ensemble's SAFETY PROJECT: Do you have opinions about law enforcement, either positive OR negative? Have you had an interaction with the police? Join us for a free Story Circle (in Friends rm. 306 from 6pm - 8pm on 3/26 or 3/28) and make your voice heard!
Civic Ensemble is an Ithaca-based, civic-minded professional theatre company that works with many members of the IC community. We often perform at the Kitchen Theatre and the Hangar Theatre, as well as other venues around town.
Every year, we recruit a group of community members to develop, create, and perform an original play about a topic of importance to our community. Our next production will be about Community-Police Relationships. The first step in this community-based-playmaking process is a series of Story Circles.
THE NEXT STORY CIRCLES ON THE ITHACA COLLEGE CAMPUS WILL BE:
Wednesday March 26th & Friday March 28th
FRIENDS HALL rm. 306
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Please join us at one of these free Story Circles, and make your voice heard!
Q: What is a Story Circle?
A: At a Story Circle, a group of strangers meet to share their stories about a given topic in a safe space - free of interruption, judgement, or conflict. It is not a lecture or a debate. The group is asked a question about the topic of Police, and each individual will have a chance to share if they want to. You don't have to share, and you don't need to give your real name if you are uncomfortable.
Q: I have a story I want to tell, but I can't come to either of these events. (OR: I don't feel comfortable sharing my story in front of a group.)
A: Contact IC alum Sarah K. Chalmers to share your experiences via email or to set up a private interview appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org OR tell your story via the text box on our website.
Q: This sounds interesting, but I don't want my name attached to my views/stories.
A: You can share anonymously, or provide us with a false name.
Q: I have opinions about the police, but no "story" to tell. What do I do?
A: Click here to take our SURVEY, and make your thoughts known!
Q: I might want to participate in the play you're creating.
A: You can get involved in the Safety Project in many ways, from performing in the play to helping with design or marketing. Click here to learn more, or contact email@example.com
Q: Do I need to RSVP?
A: Nope, just show up at 6pm!
Q: I have questions...
A: Ithaca College Theatre Arts alum Sarah K. Chalmers can answer them!
