2010 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Angie will create a traveling puppet show exploring their identity and the idea of home. Growing up queer and poor in rural Kentucky, Angie felt that they were pushing up against many negative stereotypes and took little pride in where they came from. An eventual move to Philadelphia put them on a path of self-discovery that helped them recognize how much the idea of pride in one’s home or community must first come from within. Not only are we shaped by our communities, but we have the potential to shape them as well. Through this performance, Angie hopes to inspire the audience to delve within themselves and connect with who they are as individuals as well as have the courage to realize their own potential and happiness. Angie believes that we can only be vital parts of our communities if we embrace all of the of pieces of ourselves and hopes that through puppetry, they can inspire a shift of consciousness within their community through reconnecting with our roots.
