A free literary program for young writers and activists to explore protest and creative action

About this commission

Programmed in collaboration with Kameelah Janan Rasheed for participants ages 16 to 19, DIS OBEY provides space to explore protest and creative action through writing, storytelling, and visual art workshops. With guidance from acclaimed writers and artists, participants will create original work that examines identity, personal narrative, historical acts of protest, and self-determination.
