Discord: Roughhewn People - Saturday, Nov. 10, 6-8 p.m., South Park Church

Curated Gallery, Live Dance, Music and Poetry, Communal Art Projects, and Space for Reflection. Free Admission. All are welcome.

An event for those who want to be honest about the broken people and broken systems around us, to wrestle with the “why’s" of daily anger, indifference and death. Through art, dance, poetry, music, and community, join us as we dream beyond the brokenness, lamenting, mourning where needed. In spite of, and because of, that brokenness we work towards harmony instead of discord.
