EarSay is an artist-driven non-profit arts organization dedicated to uncovering and portraying stories of the uncelebrated. Founded by Warren Lehrer and Judith Sloan in 1999, our projects bridge the divide between documentary and expressive forms in books, exhibitions, on stage, in sound & electronic media. We are committed to fostering understanding across cultures, generations, gender and class, through artistic productions and education. We bring our work to theatres, museums, schools, prisons, festivals and universities.
How we do our work:
1. We create projects that can be used by specific communities. Our most ambitious project to date is Crossing the BLVD: strangers, neighbors, aliens in a new America which includes a touring exhibition, a book, a series of performances. How you can help: by sponsoring the exhibition, producing a performance, buying a book. Crossing the BLVD project on our EarSay website.
2. We run an ongoing workshop training immigrant and refugee teenagers in theatre, radio, and storytelling in partnership with the International High School. EarSay Youth Voices and Transforming Trauma Into Art. $500 pays for one student for an entire year.
