IMMERSION


Cameron Gray will create an event that will bring the community of Des Moines/ Ames together so that we can have a true conversation about the racial climate in our communities and political sphere, in hopes to find a solution for change. There will be an art component and also a fish fry because what better way to understand each other than over food. This is will be a family-oriented event in hopes to change the narrative on kids and young adults can strive to be. I want to show the power of art to bring communities together and to prove that change is possible when we work together. This campaign is here to help with the food (i.e. 100lbs of Catfish, drinks, chef) and other amenities, such as a live DJ and a Bounce House for the kids.
