2015-2016 Continuation Grant Recipient

PULLproject (Los Angeles, CA) and Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress (NCRR)(Los Angeles, CA) engaged in an intensive day-long workshop, which led to a workshop period of rewrites and the completion of a full first draft of a performance piece titled Tales of Clamor. This work period was followed by a public staged reading to share the work. All partners are still committed to seeing Tales of Clamor through to premiere, anticipated for Fall/Winter of 2018.


Walking The Tightrope:  Lessons learned on continuing our partnership with a non-arts, elder, activist organization and facing serious, real-life challenges during the process of creation

"We decided to include personal details in the Shareback, because of the inevitable presence of daily life and ongoing needs for community-self care.  And we wonder:  How are we all doing with life balance?  How do we take care of self, without guilt, resistance or resentment, while working actively on what we love and believe in?  Can we communicate with courage, knowing that communication stands well on the shoulders of trust and solid relationships? How do we, in all the ways, show up for self and other?"
