We Are All Connected Exhibit 11/6

West Lafayette Public Library

We Are All Connected is a “multimedia, multiracial experience examining the role of the feminine in world culture and the rise to greater recognition of women’s voices.” Events and affinity councils are free and open to people of all genders, now at West Lafayette Public Library through December 8th. It's presented by Indiana Voices of Women and the Purdue Black Cultural Center.

John Clare spoke with steering committee members Barb Clark and Ileana Cortes Santiago about the events.

Eight affinity councils will meet four times between November 6 and December 8 to explore their connections as a community. Hosted by trained dialogue facilitators, councils will view portions of “The Way Home,” a World Trust film by Shakti Butler, at each gathering and discuss select topics. Participants will be limited to eight in each group. Advance registration is required by emailing and providing name, email, telephone, and self-selected affinity group—Arab, Asian, Black, Jewish, Latino/a, Multiracial, Native American or White.  

Indiana Voices of Women is a nonprofit founded in 2009 in West Lafayette, Ind., to host programs and events that bring together women to explore voices of the past, claim their own voices and lead with wisdom.

The Purdue Black Cultural Center offers programs and services for the campus and community, nurturing and presenting the African American experience through art, history and cultural understanding.
