Organizing for health and justice through performance and community collaboration.

Mission: It is In You projects are about building more equitable access to health and justice through live performances, workshops, residencies, and community-based research.  

Methods: Led by Marie Garlock, It is In You eventsteaching, and advocacy partnerships are dedicated to connecting people to their own bodies, exactly as they are now--a vital act for those of us who face advanced illness, social crisis, or cycles of violence. 

Vision: All It is In You initiatives hope to enliven our curiosity about creativity itself--especially in unlikely places, around taboo subjects, and as led by persons living daily with health and civil rights challenges. Creativity in our stories and bodies can awaken our integrity as both political and playful; it can light up individuals' strengths and manifest in spirited collectivity.
