Pan Valley Institute: More Than A Bread Basket

DescriptionCreated, written, and directed by the ArteVism fellows, this project is the culmination of nine months of work. With the help of a learning group made up of youths from Fresno, Merced, and Tulare counties, the fellows use storytelling and dramatization to discuss active citizenship and social problems pertinent to their communities. “More than a Bread Basket” follows a series of fictional characters based on the real-life experiences of learning group members and their extended families and friends. It seeks to show the diversity and cultural richness of the Central Valley while examining the struggles and daily challenges faced by the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities that call the Central Valley home.
