?Safe in This Place? is a theater-based workshop series that will engage residents of northern Crown Heights ? specifically the neighborhood around Franklin Avenue ? in exploring the question: ?What does it mean to be safe in this neighborhood?? It will culminate in a public event/performance in March that will be designed by participants to share what we?ve discovered and extend the dialogue to more people in our neighborhood. The workshops will be facilitated by three local artists (Jess Levy, Jessie Reilly, and Julia Taylor), who are trained in using theater and drama to engage groups in creative reflection and dialogue. The workshops will be offered free of charge to adult residents who live, work, and/or socialize on or near Franklin Avenue between Atlantic Avenue and Eastern Parkway. There will be light refreshments at all the sessions. No theater experience is necessary. Every Thursday from January 12 through March 15, 2012 (Participants are asked to attend all 10 sessions.)
