We’re excited to bring the Facing Project to our community!
The Facing Project is a community storytelling project founded by J.R. Jamison and Kelsey Timmerman in Muncie, Indiana that connects people through stories to strengthen community. You can learn more about the nationwide project at www.facingproject.com.
Our Project, “Facing Dayton: Neighborhood Narratives”
With the support from an Ohio Campus Compact grant, the University of Dayton has partnered with Citywide Development and several Dayton neighborhood associations to bring a Facing Project to Dayton. Our project is titled “Facing Dayton: Neighborhood Narratives.” We collected stories from community members who have grown up or lived in the Dayton neighborhoods. We aimed to capture the experience living in Dayton, and the challenges or advantages that go along with it.
