Speak Up, Speak Out!


Speak Up, Speak Out! is our two year project in partnership with Denver Parks & Recreation-MY Denver.

Through a civic practice approach, we are collaborating with youth to use theatre as a tool to build awareness, spark dialogue, and inspire action around the social determinants affecting Healthy Eating and Active Living (HEAL) in the La Alma/Lincoln Park Neighborhood. This project features workshops, community gatherings, storytelling, and public performances.

Our Youth Advisory Board (left to right): James, Alice, Desirea, Emily, Meghann, Aden, Norr, Andrea, Adam, Ali, Chelsea A, Alliyah, Maya, Chelsea P, Robin. Other members (missing from photo) include: Raquel, Yahya, and Malcolm.
