Celebrate Lincoln’s ‘Stories of Impact’

Join friends and neighbors as we share portraits and short films featuring the people and stories of Lincoln's historic neighborhoods.


Collective Impact Lincoln and local storyteller Gabriella Parsons will share portraits and short films from the recent Stories of Impact series during Lincoln’s First Friday Art Walk this Friday, April 5.

The open house is from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Asian Community and Cultural Center, 144 N. 44th St. in Lincoln (map). Short film screenings featuring Lincoln neighbors will be at 7 and 7:30 p.m. The free, family-friendly event is open to the public, with complimentary snacks and beverages.

Stories of Impact’s portraits, short films, and narratives are set in Collective Impact Lincoln’s focus neighborhoods –– Near South, Everett, Belmont, Hartley, Clinton and University Place.

Under the hashtag #ImpactLNK on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, Stories of Impact has amplified the perspectives of Lincolnites living in these areas of the city by asking them to reflect upon where they live and what makes their community unique. Several of the featured residents will be in attendance on April 5.

“Throughout this project, I’ve met so many individuals who have generously shared their stories and experiences that shape who they are,” Parsons said. “I’m thrilled to have this work showcased at the Asian Center, a space that is committed to empowering immigrant communities in Lincoln.”

Collective Impact Lincoln (Civic Nebraska, Nebraska Appleseed, and the South of Downtown Community Development Organization) creates resident-led investment and positive change in the city’s core neighborhoods.

Through canvassing, community events, and Community Builder Workshops, Collective Impact Lincoln helps Lincolnites examine their neighborhoods’ natural strengths and to adopt new ways to improve their quality of life.

See you April 5!
