As a cultural organizer, producer, educator and consultant I support communities, projects, artists and organizations that use art and creativity for social justice, using cultural assets to bring their visions to life.
Current and Past Collaborations include:
THE LITERACY PROJECT / MAESTRA
The Literacy Project is a multi-media documentary project on adult literacy in the Americas and the role of liberation education in social movements. Maestra tells the story of the 1961 Cuban Literacy Campaign through the personal testimonies of the young women who went out to teach literacy in rural communities across the island.
Horns to Havana is a project designed to facilitate cultural exchange between the world of American jazz and the gifted music students of Cuba, worlds that share deep roots in the soil of Europe and Africa. The Horns Project / Horns to Havana is a New York City based nonprofit organization dedicated to instrument donation, repair and training and education and cultural exchanges. In the improvisational and exploratory spirit of jazz, we strive to fulfill dreams of aspiring young musicians and work to strengthen the ties between countries using shared musical traditions
