Writers Block Ink
The Writers Block Ink, Inc. transforms youth and communities through the arts. Our primary mission is to arm young voices with the power of pen and prose, reinforcing teamwork, accountability, and responsibility to ignite social change on the page and stage. Here, youth create and perform their own works running the full spectrum of creative arts (writing, dancing, singing, visual arts, and others).
All Writer’s Block productions address serious social issues youth and communities regularly encounter. These include micro and macro themes of abuse, discrimination, peer pressure, bullying, drugs, teen pregnancy, family dysfunction, racism, violence, war, etc.
We establish an environment that invites and nurtures individual and collective creativity. We engage youth from all walks of life to use all aspects of theatre as a tool to address personal and social challenges. At the Block, we invite and encourage youth to open up, speak up, create and perform. We find, feed, and launch young leaders.
