CHICAGO'S PROBLEM WITH GUN AND GANG VIOLENCE HAS BEEN WELL-PUBLICIZED OVER THE YEARS, BUT VERY FEW HAVE TALKED ABOUT THE WORK THAT IS HAPPENING TO DEAL WITH ITS EVOLUTION ON A NEIGHBORHOOD LEVEL. MANY QUESTIONS LINGER. WHAT IS BEING DONE TO KEEP PEOPLE OUT OF THE CYCLE OF VIOLENCE? WHAT IS BEING DONE TO KEEP THE PEACE? WHAT DOES THIS WORK LOOK LIKE?

"THE PARK" IS HERE TO SHOW YOU. DEVELOPED THROUGH STONE SOUP THEATRE PROJECT, THIS NARRATIVE WEB SERIES CHRONICLES A TEAM OF OUTREACH WORKERS AS THEY NAVIGATE THIS TROUBLING LANDSCAPE. 

IT ISN'T PRETTY. IT ISN'T BLACK AND WHITE. IT ISN'T PROVIDING SOLUTIONS. THIS IS THE STORY THAT TAKES YOU BEYOND THE HEADLINES AND INTO "THE PARK".

TAKE A WALK.
