JMM Insights: Amplifying Community Voices
This week’s edition of JMM Insights comes from Paige Woodhouse, Director of Strategic Projects.
The brick archways on the façade of JMM are being activated in new ways. JMM is thrilled to use these large, exterior spaces to represent and amplify the diverse voices and initiatives in Maryland’s Jewish community. On display beginning July 25, 2021, the large archways will be filled with art created by Davi Cheng to showcase the Jews of Color Mishpacha Project.
JMM is a proud partner of the Jews of Color Mishpacha Project, a Baltimore based global project that aims to create a gathering space where all Jews of Color find a place and belonging. The Jews of Color Mishpacha Project strives to be a hub of learning, convening, and growth for JOC individuals, communities, and Jewish institutions.
The installation art has been created by Davi Cheng, a Los Angeles-based artist whose work fulfills her lifelong passion of working in a creative field and making beautiful things that enhance our world and the ways that people communicate.
You can learn more about the Jews of Color Mispacha project by visiting their website here. You can learn more about one of their upcoming events, a screening the film “40 Days of Teshuva,” below.
