Salaam Green is a community activist, educator, spoken word artist, and founder of Literary Healing Arts. This week on Virtual Conversations with Creatives, Salaam shares how writing helped her heal, how forced isolation has changed her creative process, and why now is the best time for even non-writers to begin writing for themselves. https://youtu.be/JDOKXqqbaZ8
"We crave connection, and I think that is what theatre is all about — connecting stories to audiences and, more importantly, finding the common experiences and emotions that connect us all."
"Even before I joined JVTF, I was interested in emergency food needs and the social justice issues that were connected to those needs. Being reactive to those needs and responding is part of our mission. Our ideas don’t always work, but I believe that vulnerability and making mistakes is part of the process of growing and improving, and so far we’ve been embraced by our community and our students."
