In partnership with Charlotte Center City Partners we will be presenting the Wall of Compassion to the attendees at the 2017 VISION Awards. This event honors the people in our community who are helping grow Charlotte into a dynamic modern city. We are grateful to have the opportunity to share this project with the “movers and shakers” who can really lead the city in a compassionate direction.
This is our premiere event! Located in the historic Grace AME Zion church building in uptown Charlotte, this event will provide you with an opportunity to hear stories and interact with the Wall of Compassion. Read some of the acts of kindness done during the Blessing Box Campaign, add to the wall, and hear stories from neighbors in Charlotte you wouldn’t normally meet. An evening of compassion and community for the whole family. This event will be a stop on the Uptown Gallery Crawl, so make a night of it and experience Charlotte’s vibrant cultural scene.

These are the events where artists will lead public art-making workshops using the strips of paper from the Blessing Boxes as material to create public works of art. Fun for the whole family!
