The artist and filmaker Coralie Maurin came from Paris, France to visit the city of Peoria to discover the beauty of the Hale Memorial Church and as an active member of the YAKU Arts community to help create a film for the Indiegogo Campaign titled Floors and Doors.
Floors and Doors was the first restoration initiative of Yaku. For years the Hale Memorial Church was unattended to; this project was the first act to reclaim the space. Floors and Doors is series of simple preservative gestures to stabilize the church.
The film was shot by Coralie Maurin and edited by Tory Dahlhoff.
ENJOY THE FILM
Through the Indiegogo campaign we raised over $15,000 through the website and private donations. That money went to small building repairs and a cleanup weekend.
We are still accepting donations to go towards building repairs. You may donate on the yakupeoria.org website.
