If you have an idea for an interactive theater project or a community based arts project we would love to hear from you. We enjoy meeting with community members who have a creative project idea and figuring out a way to bring it to life.
Past community based projects have included members of the Wing Luke curator community who we assisted to create a photo voice project.
Members of the Mixed Heritage Family Oral History Project at the UW school of Social Work.
We have begun conversations with an HIV positive women’s organization based in Canada and are in discussions to create a community based theater project together. We are also in discussions with members of the Asian Pacific Islander community in South Seattle to collaborate with teens and youth in the community.
Process for proposing a project
Phase 1: send us a short summary of the proposed project. Then Memory War staff will respond with information about whether this type of project fits with our mission and vision and if we have the expertise to carry it out.
Phase 2: set up a meeting with Memory War program staff to discuss logistics of the project and see how we might be able to work together to build the project and what resources we will need to accomplish the project.
Phase 3: involves connecting with other potential program partners, developing a funding strategy for the project, raising funds and commencing program planning.
