The Art of the Story: Speaking and Listening for Our Lives (Exhibition)
Title: The Art of the Story: Speaking and Listening for Our Lives
Curator: Liz Wuerffel
Curator: Allison Schuette
Curator: Jp Avila
Abstract: Stories have power: to derive meaning from complexity; to broaden perspectives and transform sympathies; to reinforce or resist norms. Stories, then, are not neutral; they deserve our attention, our respect, and our inquiry. At the Welcome Project, we collect any and all stories — those that disturb the status-quo, those that support it, and those that fall in between. Collectively, we aim to offer a chorus of voices, in concert and discord, in conversation with each other. In facilitation, we invite interpretation and reflection on that interpretation, bringing together people from all walks of life who listen to and reflect on the stories and their experiences together, who open up to seeing their interpretation as it forms. For us, the art of the story emerges from this practice, and in this exhibition, we offer not only three artful means by which we share stories, but also the practice itself. Who are you listening to? Which story are you telling? How might you be editing both?

Abstract: Valparaiso University professor Allison Schuette joins us in the studio as one of the co-director of the Welcome Project, about the NEH grant of $100,000, to support the new "Flight Paths" initiative. Dozens of applicants seek the grants on average each year but only seven are awarded each year. We revisit conversations from the past year for "Green Fleet Radio," supported by South Shore Green Cities. This conversation is from June 13th, 2018. Homesnacks.net's "Best Places to Live 2019 list in Indiana and northwest Indiana" is out and Nick Johnson talks about the latest list. Kathy Shoaf of "Elite Cruises & Vacations" in Hobart sets up cruises for persons with dementia and other cognative issues and their caregivers. She joins us on one of the cruises.
