On February 3, 2009, Crossroads Charlotte came to life in the community because you were there to make it happen.
Thank you for joining in this historic event in the life of Charlotte-Mecklenburg.
Over 1,800 people attended the premiere of “Crossroads Charlotte: The Movie” and stayed afterwards to talk, share and discuss what they could do to act.
Behind the scenes, a new website was launched at www.crossroadscharlotte.org that offers a place for people to experience the stories, connect and act.
Together, we began to imagine our tomorrow, and we’re acting today.
What You Can Do to Act:
‘Crossroads Charlotte: the Movie’ made its debut last night at six locations throughout Charlotte, NC. The film is a cinematic version of the four Crossroads Charlotte scenarios—Fortress Charlotte, Class Act, The Beat Goes On and Eye to Eye. Each scenario depicts a possible future for Charlotte, based upon statistical data. The movie version places fictional characters in each of these futures.
Crossroads Charlotte incorporates the arts into its civic engagement process. Through storytelling, spoken-word poetry, music, visual art and theatrical performances, Crossroads Charlotte aims to improve access, equity and inclusion among Charlotte-Mecklenburg residents. The large-scale initiative encourages participants to examine four plausible scenarios for Charlotte's future and craft steps that steer the community toward positive outcomes.
A nine-member Crossroads Charlotte team traveled to Sundance to tell the Crossroads story in film, poetry, music and images.
