    Artist-in-Residence (completed for 2018)

    We wanted to get to know you. We wanted to hear your stories. This April, youth and adults came together to create a short film entitled “Neighbors Meeting Neighbors” under the guidance of our 2018 Ohio Arts Council Artist-in-Residence, Susan Halpern.

    Participants generated ideas, told stories, took pictures, and shot videos – all while learning some technical skills of filmmaking and editing. The fourth week was dedicated to utilizing Ms. Halpern’s expertise as a video editor to bring all these stories together, finding connections between people, and creating a film that represents this Artist in Residence experience and how we build community.

    THANK YOU to all who participated and supported this project. Here is the link to ALL 14 short films that were created:

    This program is supported by the Ohio Arts Council and Kennedy Heights Community Council.
