breaking walls


Fran Tarr

breaking walls, an international creative writing and performance initiative, empowers youth to discover their voice, and offers them a platform on which to use it. breaking walls relies on partners, sponsors, mentors, volunteers and friends to engage and support young people as they become creative artists and empathetic leaders of tomorrow who actively advance personal transformation and social change. 

breaking walls began with youth in Brooklyn, and Bethlehem. Since their 2012 initiative in Berlin, breaking walls is evolving from a homegrown Brooklyn solution for issues facing youth everywhere to a cohesive enterprise that profits from individual and cultural diversity in constructing a system changing youth empowerment movement.
