Through generous funding from the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation and creative support from partner, the AGAR agency, the Holocaust & Humanity Center is proud to launch its newest initiative, the Cincy Upstander Project.
The Cincy Upstander Project aims to inspire our community to become upstanders through a city-wide art campaign, monthly programs, museum tours, giveaways, and training opportunities.
AGAR has installed inspirational, interactive murals in neighborhoods throughout the tri-state region. The murals feature local upstanders who use their character strengths to better their communities and the world. Some featured upstanders include: local Holocaust survivor Edith Carter, interfaith and Muslim leader Shakila Ahmad, and arts advocate Kick Lee.
New murals will appear in various neighborhoods in Cincinnati throughout 2021.
Take a picture in front of your favorite mural and use the hashtags #CincyUpstander and #UpstanderProject, and tag us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. We’ll automatically enter you to win monthly giveaways.
