THE WORKSHOP WILL ENGAGE
participants who agree to trust the process of learning to communicate across differences. The coalition building/diversity awareness workshop is loosely based on the NCBI model of coalition building for which I am a certified trainer. I use the skills associated with NCBI combined with what I know about your community to create an experience that fits the needs of that community. This one- or two-day session will have several goals.
WHO WE ARE
Ricky Meredith, age 43, was born in Cleveland, OH and grew up in Bedford, OH. Ricky was raised by his single mother and is the oldest of three siblings. As a painter, Ricky loves color transformations and abstraction for its most aesthetic purpose- brush stroke, the act of painting, and "experiencing" color as an emotion. Each one of Ricky's paintings is like a biography of what we all hope for: redemption, freedom, strength of will. Ricky's artwork stands for the experiences of a strong-willed man that now has the freedom to express his story through the imagery in his work.
