Adriana Sanchez Alexander | Workshop for Community Arts 


To support a bookmaking project that brings together Santa Ana writers, artists, and residents to produce a series of community-written and community-published children's picture books. Taking place in Santa Ana, California, a majority-Latino city, the project addresses issues of representation, both in content and creation, publishing stories that emerge from the life of the community itself, written and illustrated by community members. Handmade through cartonera-style publishing, 900+ bilingual books will be distributed for free throughout the community, thus creating a ripple effect of meaningful and accessible experiences with literature and art for Santa Ana children and families.
