 •   108 Contemporary will host Transform Hate, Unite for Peace. This project will consist of participants writing their definition of transforming hate & hope for peace on origami paper and then folding an origami crane.  The cranes created would then be strung on fishing line to create one large cohesive piece.  The start of the line would be affixed to the ceiling above an acrylic box on the floor.  As the line becomes full, the excess would pool in the acrylic box. Located at 108 E. M. Brady Street. Their phone number is (918) 895-6302.

The sculpture will be set on fire during a special ceremony at the end of the project – releasing and multiplying positive energy into the atmosphere. This project will run from Jan. 2nd – Feb. 22nd. Located at 101 E. Archer St. and their phone number is 918-743-4297

 

•    The Dennis Neil Center for Equality will present an exhibition entitled Transforming Hate: A Creative Process will of course have its own flavor, because as we well know, bigotry is not limited to racism or anti-semitism. In fact, under Oklahoma law, sexual orientation and gender identity are not protected classes, so there are no hate crime protections for victims of anti-gay or transgender violence.  The exhibit will be for the month of January, 2015. Located at 621 East 4th Street, Tulsa, OK 74120. Their phone number is (918) 743-4297

•    Presented by the John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation, St. Aiden’s Episcopal Church will host a performance entitled, Arbol Ahorcado (The Hanged Tree). This is a performance created by artist Marianne Evans-Lombe to honor a promise she made in Ciudad Bolivar, Bogota - Colombia. The promise was to return to the U.S. and tell a story from Colombia.

•    Arbol Ahorcado is about a tree in Ciudad Bolivar, a tree where someone was hanged to intimidate a barrio. The barrio has re-claimed itself; is a home to healthy, vibrant neighborhood, full of services for its community members. But there, still sits the tree. Arbol Ahorcado was created to both preserve the cultural memory of the tragedy that took place there and as a visual symbol of the barrio’s transformation. St. Aiden’s Episcopal Church is located at 4045 North Cincinnati Dr. Their phone number is (918) 425-7882
