It is In You
As led by Marie Garlock, It is In You projects create unique, dialogue-based health and social change events and communication initiatives.
In performances, workshops, residencies, and research presentations, participants in It is In You projects build skills and knowledge to engage tough problems their communities face, from a mix of intimately grounded and systems-level perspectives. Presentations, performance and workshop facilitations, and trainings are enlivened by creative inquiry and the freshness brought by improvisation, play, and interactivity. It is In You public events, residencies, and learning environments uniquely engage story-based, movement-based, soundscape, and visual arts--as process and product, made in collaboration with involved communities. In each program, participants envision constructive, community-specific openings and solutions, which involve diverse community stakeholders.
It is In You projects and events invite us to re-imagine and re-inhabit our bodies, relationships, and interactions with institutions, to move our pursuits forward for health justice, social justice, and violence transformation.
Thank you all donors, institutional supporters, and community supporters!
