Beloved Communities: Holding Space. Spreading Love. Building Community. from The Learning Instigator is a project to design, create, and wear conversation-sparking t-shirts that promote a model for compassionate discourse on contentious topics. The shirts will be used to start intergenerational conversations by working with 8th grade students at Environmental Charter School and adults involved with Creative Conversations at the Union Project. A project website will be used to document, promote, and share the activities with the broader Pittsburgh community.
