Stories from The Set” is a photographic-multi-media collection of images and video that represent the spirit, joy, trauma and strength of the City’s communities of color. Funded by Thrive Collective Foundation (thrivecollective.com) and The Mellon Foundation (https://www.mellon.org/) and captured by Arshley Emile-Timberhouse Films, the exhibit focuses on the survival and resilience of Black people in Delray Beach.

Their stories challenge current narratives, identify naturally occurring strategies to inform efforts, and engage the voices of as many people as possible in the radically resident-driven work of The Coalition.
