Do you know your neighbors? Do you know yourself? Are there secrets you need to tell?

Silent voices is a community collaboration, a call for awareness, and a sharing of resources.

Connectivity and Partnerships
Specifically, by creating a safe and anonymous way for the Ketchikan community to share thoughts, we
hope to encourage people from all walks of life, socioeconomic classes, ethnicities, and gender identities to
contribute to a collaborative art project. The first step is engaging the community in the creative process,
followed by the exhibition, which, by the collaborative nature, will draw the diverse contributors into the
physical space of the gallery. Once together, we hope to create a rich sensory experience, but also provide
an opportunity to present community resources for behavioral health and other social services.What’s your secret?

 

We’re collecting your secrets do be displayed in a collaborative community exhibit at the Main Street Gallery March 2-30, 2018. (If you need some inspiration, check out the examples we’ve posted on this page.)

After the exhibit, we’ll host a community bonfire to destroy all submissions. Stay tuned for details!
