Handwritten is a place and space for pen and paper. We showcase things in handwriting, but also on handwriting. And so, you'll see dated letters and distant postcards alongside recent studies and typed stories.

To Whom It Should Concern

Formal Program: 6:30 - 8 p.m.
Pre-Event Activities: 5:00 p.m.

In the debates over how to improve New York City's unequal public school system, students' voices are too often left out. No longer.

On Friday, April 28th, high school students from Harlem and the Bronx will take the stage and deliver testimony about their daily experiences in school, shining a light on issues few policymakers are willing to confront. The topic for the evening is "This is my reality," and the performances will be in the form of open letters, slam poetry, and spoken word. 

In addition to the formal program, there will be an array of interactive pre-event activities beginning at 5:30 p.m. designed to inform and engage the public about educational inequity. Teens Take Charge members will lead pop-up conversations, a letter-writing campaign, video testimonials, a live art installation, photo booth, and more.

The event is free and open to the public. We welcome all members of the community, especially elected officials.

To RSVP, please do so at Eventbrite or Facebook Event.
