The world told Ferguson (and has continued to tell Ferguson) what it was and is. The events of 2014 happened, and they were tragic. However, the portrayal of this city only showed the bad and ugly, and failed to show any of the good.
Many local groups and individual citizens have worked hard to effect change. The #ThisIsMyFerguson exhibit is an opportunity for Ferguson to speak back to the world, identifying strengths and weaknesses from the perspective of those who have an authentic investment in this community.
In this workshop, you have the opportunity to color a black and white photo or draw your own postcard of a Ferguson image, then write a message to “The World” about what your current experience in Ferguson is.
