A community-wide healing event in the wake of the shooting at the Grand 16 Theatre will be held Thursday from 7 to 8:30 p.m at Blackham Coliseum. The event is organized by Lafayette Consolidated Government, with support from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Lafayette’s faith and arts communities and other community stakeholders, according to a press release from LCG.
“We wanted to create a venue for healing,” said City-Parish President Joey Durel. “Together, we’ll remember those who lost their lives, support the survivors, and publicly thank our first responders.”
Blackham Coliseum is located at 2330 Johnston St.
