Project Hope + Freedom (pH+F)
An international art collaborative to empower youth to creatively express their cultural narrative as they define what hope and freedom mean to them.
pH+F takes youth, ages 10-14, through a creative process by guiding them in response to other youth's writing and illustrations. We partner with community-based organizations and professional artists. The youth's artwork is then curated into a traveling art exhibition with the aim to publish an international poetic and illustrative anthology.
pH+F was inspired by my former students, Palestinian youth who wrote poetry and also illustrated about what hope and freedom mean to them.
