A Collective Ribbon: Weaving Stories of the Triangle Fire: A Participatory Community Event
March 16 at 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
One event on March 17, 2019 at 11:00am
Join us for two days of events and discussion on March 16 and 17 about the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire and its memory. The centerpiece of the event will be the collective creation of a ribbon, formed together from smaller individual pieces of fabric brought by the participants. The ribbon will be used to cast the main element of the memorial, which will be mounted on the facade of the Brown Building in Manhattan, where the fire took place on March 25, 1911.
You are invited to embed your personal contribution in the body of the future memorial and to share with us why the story of the Triangle Fire and the memory of those who perished matters to you. Read more about the event here.
This event is free and open to the public.
