Writing Home

Seeking to shift the public, citizen imagination around undocumented individuals, Writing Home is a 5-month writing fellowship that will explore various elements of writing from the undocumented experience and uplift the voices of undocumented writers across the United States despite systems of citizenship entangled with race and class. By creating narratives that are led by and for undocumented people, artist Yosimar Reyes will collaborate with 15 undocumented artists and immigrant advocacy organizations to design and create a first-person collective voice that takes stock of the way in which undocumented individuals laugh, dance, create and live in joy.
