Announced on January 7, 2020: Artists M. Carmen Lane and Shaun Leonardo will be commissioned by moCa Cleveland to produce “Recovering Cleveland’s Jazz Temple,” a yearlong series of arts interventions and programs paying homage to the historic African-American live music venue that was the target of racialized violence and harassment until its bombing in 1963.

Lane and Leonardo will create a series of workshops that convene various communities who have been directly and indirectly impacted by the Jazz Temple. The workshops will engage movement and storytelling as a way to embody and express trauma, grief, and reflection. Their collaboration will culminate in the creation of a new multimedia work and special public processional and performance directed by the artists.

“This grant will allow us to help address Cleveland’s history of racial and cultural segregation,” said Jill Snyder, executive director of moCa Cleveland. “Residents will be enriched by an approach that engages the community to draw on collective memories and inter-generational storytelling in order to revisit the past while also focusing on equity and social justice today.”
