The Walls Project: Stories from the Crevices
What stories do city walls, border walls, and prison walls have to tell us? What stories are stuck inside bedroom walls, kitchen walls, and the walls that separate neighbors from each other? How do these walls mirror the ones we learned to build inside our own bodies? And what were the consequences?
The Walls Project explores the physical and metaphorical significance of walls in our external landscapes as well as in our internal emotional and imagined landscapes, daring to imagine what might happen when stories inside walls rise up through cracks and crevices to be heard and seen in the world.
The Walls Project brings together Bay Area poets, filmmakers, storytellers, dancers and spoken word artists in the cause of liberating the stories inside walls, calling them up and out from the crevices, and transforming walls into communal gathering places from which new stories might take root and grow.
