The Absent Narrative Project

StoryArk seeks to create a relevant and accessible arts experience for students whose voices are underrepresented and to remove barriers that keep the stories of marginalized groups from being heard. Through our on-going Absent Narratives Project with school districts, we strive to elevate youth voice and leadership in order to improve and ensure inclusiveness in our schools and our community. 
During StoryArk’s creative process, students explore identity and produce podcasts, short films, music lyrics and a literary magazine that features prose, poetry and visual arts. Youth share these stories with themselves and with the general public, and by doing so, promote understanding and increase empathy for the student experience.
