This family-friendly event celebrates the year-long We Wear the Mask project developed by the Healthy Cleveland, Healthy Neighborhoods Committee of the Cleveland Department of Public Health. Community Solutions serves on the Healthy Neighborhoods Committee. Register for the event here.

The We Wear the Mask campaign is a work of community art and artistic expression. The campaign’s intention is to bring to light issues related to racism and inequity. And it seeks to answer the question, “What does it mean to wear the mask today?” The project included a call for art from local artists, a mural and a Mask Off video series.
