2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

  • Neighborhood: West Philadelphia
  • Change Partner: Chris Rogers
  • Discipline: Performance
  • Social Change / Intent: Racial Justice

Using story circles to document the experiences and beliefs of educators, students, and parents Anissa will co-create a piece of documentary theater that shares their visions for educational transformation in Philadelphia. Her cultural strategy through this project is to strengthen bonds and heal tensions within the education justice community and amplify participants’ calls for systemic change. Anissa will pull on her experience as a theater director to have youth participants answer questions about what liberatory education looks like and what skills and strategies we need to solve the problems of our world.
