Support "Creating Home," a Youth Arts Program For Adoptees
This summer, I'll be working with Land of a Gazillion Adoptees and COMPAS on a youth arts program aimed at creating spaces where adoptees can share their stories while also having access to tools and resources to help with that process. Check out the full Kickstarter page here.
The project is being driven by the adoptee community, especially young people, who are identifying community needs. My role is really just on the arts side of things-- facilitating writing and performance workshops, helping to organize performance opportunities, etc.
The idea is that this can be a pilot for a larger, sustainable, state-wide program. To make that happen, we're raising money to ensure that this pilot year can be as powerful as possible. Whether or not you can give, check it out.
