Join GRAM alongside a diverse collection of community partners as we explore how wordless storytelling occurs through different forms of creativity and self-expression. In these interactive conversations, participants will learn from local experts and experience how seemingly disparate art forms share commonalities.

On November 14, join the Mosaic Film Experience for a discussion on storytelling without sound in film. The Mosaic Film Experience hosts a variety of annual events and workshops that strive to provide conversational spaces, media literacy resources, and opportunities for diverse youth to tell their own unique stories.

Take a journey with Opera Grand Rapids along the path of opera star, Diane Schoff as she transforms from her everyday self to a glittering, high-spirited character on the Opera Stage. From the elaborate costume to the colorful make-up and wigs, all will be revealed in this fun presentation of what it takes to make an opera singer!
