Lane Arts Council and Wordcrafters in Eugene collaborated to bring community storytellers and professional artists together in creating this unique installation. Each panel, created by a different visual artist, is directly inspired by and made in collaboration with community storytellers who participated in StoryHelix. Wordcrafters in Eugene’s StoryHelix project invites community members to share their stories about the theme “belonging” and their experiences living in Eugene, Lane County and Oregon. Contributed stories become a part of a collective archive of voices from across our community. The stories selected for this art installation represent a wide range of lived experiences. Enjoy these stories visually and use the QR code under each poster to listen to the storyteller recording.
