Students, parents, and elders come together for our community based, intergenerational playwriting and performance workshop.
Our intergenerational Neighborhood Voices program is a 12-week intensive workshop that brings parents and adult community members together to create & perform their own modernized fable alongside their children and other youth from their community. The unique experience provides valuable mirroring & mentoring opportunities for the underserved youth who are the focus of our work.
“The Unusual Suspects hasn’t helped me only; it helps my family, and it helps my community as well. As a mother, I like my kids to be busy doing something good, instead of having them outside in the streets doing things that they’re not supposed to be doing. This is a wonderful program for me and my community.”
“This program has helped me gain self-confidence, it’s helped me find my voice, and it’s helped me feel empathy for others, and know that I’m not the only one in this world.”
