Our writing projects are a process of desegregation: we overcome what we call double displacement.
That is, when the storytellers cannot cross the same borders as their stories.
We use the tools of the future to archive the past. Our stories are multimedia and translingual. Each storyteller tells her own story in her own words and images. We collaborate with artists, writers and researchers of all ages in community spaces and K-20 (Kindergarten through Ph.D.) educational institutions throughout the Americas. We focus on those with the least access to circulate their work across socioeconomic, linguistic, raced, gendered and geopolitical borders. Together, we collaborate on multiple genres of writing required for storytellers and their stories to cross borders.
