On With Living and Learning (OWLL) brings together underrepresented women and girls with teaching artists and human service professionals. Leadership workshops result in theater performances that focus on social justice issues. These serve as passageways to transforming and developing a community’s future.
OWLL was founded by Fort Point’s Mary Driscoll. A recent performance of “Humanity not Statistics”, written by Mary and directed by Tasia O. Jones, took place in a novel site – the Tropical Forest Pavilion at the Franklin Park Zoo. This was a staged reading, in collaboration with Sisterhood on the Move and Samuel Hurtado of South Boston en Accion, in memory of Marvin Barros.
Performers included Talieyka Boscana, Janae Meghan Vellere, Abigail Brown Florentino, Ashley Villar, Jacarrea Garraway, Jamilex Vega, and Nayah Bright-Reason.
