Spread Light Sandtown
April 7, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Using multimedia storytelling paired with audience engagement, Spread Light Sandtown will bring together generations of community for a one-night event celebrating the rich history, culture, and legacy of Sandtown-Winchester.
Using thoughts, goals, and images collected during the Sandtown Visions session on March 25, the evening will combine visual projections and sound installations of community histories. These will transform the Lilian Jones Recreation Center into a glow in the dark cultural celebration, with roller skaters, dancers, arabbers, DJs and more.
The event is part of the Light City “Neighborhood Lights” program.
