"The human VOICE is the organ of the Soul."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
WHO WE ARE
Finding your Voice
Our lives are made up of more than just waking up, working, and sleeping. To fully feel human, we must find our passion. We must find out what drives us. We must find
out who we truly are, or in other words:
We must find our voice.
Through storytelling, improv, work with Shakespearean text, acting, and performance, participants with Voices UnCaged will do just that. We work with incarcerated individuals around the country and have been in residence at Groveland Correctional Facility in Western New York every summer since 2016.
The program began in 2015 as a pilot program at Arkansas Community Corrections. After receiving a Creative Community Fellowship from National Arts Strategies, the program began a partnership with Shake on the Lake Shakespeare. Since then, Voices UnCaged has been to conferences, given presentations and lectures at universities around the country, and recieved support from the New York State Council on the Arts.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
