Giving a voice to the issues we face together

Join us for the June Creative Conversation featuring artists Brian Broome, Jacquea Mae, and Kevin Snipes. The dialogue will focus on how artists discuss identity through their craft.

Brian Broome is a Leroy K Irvis Fellow at the University of Pittsburgh. His work has appeared in Creative Nonfiction and The Guardian.

Jacquea Mae serves as a teaching artist at 1Hood Media and The Corner Pittsburgh, asserting her creativity and originality with a voice and spirit that soars!

Kevin Snipes combines his love of constructing unconventional forms with an obsessive need to draw on everything that he produces. He is currently an Artist-in-Residence at Union Project.

Creative Conversation is a monthly event that brings people together to practice constructive dialogue, build empathy, and share resources. We will forge seemingly unlikely relationships by listening and sharing our differing views on current topics. Facilitated by community leaders, our goal is to empower participants to enact change within themselves and within the communities.

Union Project is committed to being accessible to all. Union Project is wheelchair accessible via our Stanton Avenue door. Please let us know what accommodations we can make to ensure your experience is positive, contact Michelle Clesse at michelle@unionproject.org if you have specific accommodations or needs.

Through the Creative Conversation series, we hope to grow people’s capacity to address issues of inequity in our community. Each conversation is shaped by those participating in this open format. We share our unique perspectives, hopes, and concerns – and then help challenge one another to take action in our lives to create positive change.

The Creative Conversations Series is supported by the Three Rivers Community Foundation.
