Review for Insideout Literary Arts Project, Detroit, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a professional writer and former educator and business owner, I was impressed with the fire and commitment to the InsideOut Literary Arts Project displayed by the Founder and Executive Director, Terry Blackhawk. Her enthusiasm is contagious. Since then, I have become a donor to this critical project that can change children's lives as they discover their creative selves and speak out. I have read and been moved by the work of these children. I have met the artists who teach and give their deepest selves to keep this program alive and growing. Detroit needs such voices, such belief and such commitment to succeed.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Hearing about the teaching, writing and change that such a program creates. Gives me hope.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Intelligent artists who create an environment for learning, exploration and creativity. They unloose the children's voices.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Extend the program to more metro Detroit schools and organizations. Extend learning opportunities to other children and adults. Create interdisciplinary writing activities. Work as a team with other organizations. Unleash the voices of the Detroit area.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
