is a way of being. it is deconstructing, sometimes through one's mere existence, social and ideological barriers that keep people separate and feuding. a space to feel disequilibrium in habituated notions of dominance and dependency. further, our purpose is to communicate counter narratives to the dominant "white supremacist capitalist patriarchy" (hooks), that inundates minds and bodies, while encouraging feelings of honest representation, belonging, and agency in children. we acknowledge that artistic creation and exploration can be a powerful learning and healing environment, and believe that within each child the ability to create is present and unlimited. therefore we seek to let shine the inner world of the child - our world as it can be - may we listen to, respect, and honor the youngest among us.
transcending walls: to rise above
and be independent of immaterial and
intangible barriers; collectively
allowing the creative process.
