The Free School for Writing is an ongoing project of writer and artist Denise Delgado and is based in Boston, MA. It is a modular, itinerant classroom where writers, artists and lifelong learners can exchange skills and ideas around writing, literature, and education. Interdisciplinary arts projects in partnership with community organizations also promote literacy and use writing to address local needs. At this informal, welcoming “school,” caregivers can bring babies or others in their care if they need to. Learn more here: http://freeschoolforwriting.tumblr.com/
Tortilla Social, including this event, was made possible with funding by the New England Foundation for the Arts' Creative City Program, with funding from The Barr Foundation and with additional support from the Boston Foundation. Tortilla Social has also partnered with the Urbano Project and Hyde Square Task Force as community partners on this project.
