K(no)w Voice, K(no)w Power

Nov. 6, 2017

6 to 8 p.m.

16 Park Community Center
546 East 17th Street, Indianapolis

Where do you stand? Reveal your convictions by where you stand in the room and join our kinetic conversation on the power of persuasion, empathy, and compassion. 

Robert F. Kennedy's speech in Indianapolis the night Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered implores us to use the power of compassion to find understanding. This deeply participatory event illustrates the power of words and conversation to persuade and build empathy for others. Starting with the ideas of compassion and empathy that emerge from Kennedy's 1968 speech, participants will be asked to physically establish their position around complicated questions and then potentially, and physically, shift their position as new perspectives are shared. 

Free. Registration encouraged by Nov. 5, as space is limited. 

Parking is available in the Community Center lot, on the side of the building. There is overflow parking available across the street, behind Kroger. 

A part of the Spirit and Place Festival, presented by the Indiana Historical Society, Kennedy King Memorial Initiative, 16 Park Community Center, Desmond Tutu Center for Peace, Reconciliation, and Global Justice; and the IUPUI Office of Intercultural Literacy, Capacity, and Engagement. 

Reserve your space today!
