Indianapolis' Near West neighborhoods are some of the city's most diverse, and all connect directly with the White River. Local nonprofit Indy Convergence has worked with residents for years on creative ways to improve the landscape and livability of the area. Its latest project, A Rising Tide, includes outdoor performances along the river and on a floating stage.

WFYI’s Jill Ditmire spoke with Artistic Director and co-chair of the Visibility Task Force Robert Negron about how A Rising Tide hopes to help people make their way through the COVID-19 crisis.

Negron joined the conversation by phone.
