THE POWER OF EXPRESSION.
We support all voices, by providing free programming to juvenile halls and camps in Los Angeles County. Through an implementation of diverse mediums, our student artists unleash their voice through traditional theater, improvisation, poetry, mixed media arts, and playwriting. Focused on reflective storytelling, our young adult participants explore key moments in their lives with fresh perspective, giving them agency to make new decisions and forge fresh paths forward as an artist. This curriculum model serves as a base for future arts training and a modality for self-expression and emotional regulation, providing our artists with the opportunity to develop a growing writing portfolio they can take with them after their period of incarceration- providing a foundation for professional development and opportunity. Each culmination finishes with a monologue or scene presentation written and performed by each student artist, a perfect showcase for budding poets and performers.
