Hunts Point Young Writers Explore the Meaning of Sanctuary

The Storefront Ensemble Performance Shares Stories of Finding Community


On Thursday May 24th and Friday May 25th, the Storefront Ensemble performed their collection of monologues, Seeking Sanctuary. The Ensemble, comprised of 7th and 8th grade scholars, spend the year writing narratives that reflect their experiences, neighborhood, and families while learning to use written word as an expressive art form. Students’ final pieces are adapted and combined into a script that the students perform for their parents and community. This year, the writing prompts included personal narratives and themes on community, family, and self-acceptance.
