"Moving Words" is a collaboration between youth in the Waterloo Writing Project, Shuaib Meacham's hip-hop literacy group, The Truth and UNI art students. The project encourages all participants to reflect on the importance of community and citizenship while also acknowledging and celebrating the similarities and differences between each of our experiences through creative lenses. Waterloo Writing Project students will use ideas generated through shared journal exercises between all students as inspiration to write creative written works that will be passed on to 3D Concepts students who will, through the support of the UNI Digital Media Hub, create short, stop-motion films based on the writers' works. The Truth musicians will then use the written works and the films to create a soundtrack that will be layered on to each film. This semester-long collaboration will culminate in a public movie premiere (complete with a red carpet!) at the Waterloo Center for the Arts where the community is invited to celebrate alongside these writers, musicians and artists and see the films they created together projected on the "big screen". A panel discussion with all of the artists will follow the screening.
