While focusing on communities in the education sector and those who are incarcerated, JustWrite seeks to encourage the creation and presentation of visual and literary arts as catalysts for storytelling, healing, self-discovery, and community-building. JustWrite fosters safe spaces to contemplate where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going through self-reflective creative expression.
JustWrite is an attempt to encourage folks from all walks of life, socio economic situations, ethnicities and backgrounds to do simply that, “just write.” We believe that common ground can be found amongst all folks through the written and spoken word. This journaling, poetry, performance, and visual arts project demonstrates the meaningful ways in which we can connect with ourselves and the world around us, creating vital networks of support, accessibility, and opportunities for growth and cultural preservation.
Write on!!! I am in complete support of your mission. Carlos – let’s get together soon!
