Word on the Block is...

Writer's Block is coming back this summer to create an impactful and powerful production to spark some change in our communities! We will be using all types of art mediums to explore how to express ourselves, including: acting, music engineering, dance/movement, visual art, film production and more! Our youth are our guide in what we produce all summer long, so all of our content is 100% original. Want to develop your artistic skills, as well as learn how to be an advocate for all folks across the nation? Then you've come to the right place. Be a part of the team that will make history by turning the art the page to fighting for social justice on the stage!

Testimonials from Summer Programming

"Because at the block, not only do you get to express your creativity, but you get to learn about the world around you and figure out what you can do to make it better, all while making friends that by the end of the program will feel like family."
