The Parrish Art Museum

Story Circle on Friday, January 26 at 6 p.m. Community members are encouraged to gather to share their experiences and thoughts.
Small circles of about eight people will have time to share their stories and discuss topics of relevance on the East End in a conversations facilitated by a moderator.

, Meegan Chaskey, Cornelius Eady, Kathy Engel, Joe Lamport, and Lukas Ortiz.
"I strongly believe that in polarized times like these, as a community we need a place to come together and share and listen to each other, no matter our differences. The Parrish offers this space through the Story Circle," said Corinne Erni, Senior Curator, ArtsReach and Special Projects. "It is open to everyone who cares about the condition of our nation and our community and wants to have a voice, and we encourage all members of the community to participate."

The People's State of the Union Story Circle is an invitation to anyone to host a national conversation in their homes, schools, houses of worship, cultural institutions, and community centers. The concept was created by the "U.S. Department of Arts and Culture" (USDAC), an artists' collective that is neither an official agency nor affiliated in any way with the federal government. The USDAC defines itself as "a people-powered movement dedicated to cultivating empathy, equity, and social imagination." Between January 26 and February 4, 2018, hundreds of individuals and organizations across the U.S. will sign up to host Story Circles.
Registration is free and open to all East End residents 15 and older.
The Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information, call 631-283-2118 or visit parrishart.org.
