The MEZA Project

The Meza Project is a social justice focused art-based curricula implemented for intergenerational engagement & designed exclusively for Neighborhood Associates Corporation. 

Families nationwide including: Washington, D.C., Wilmington NC., Bradenton, FL. & Louisville, KY., explore the Swahili term meza or table in context of examining equity. 

Three systems are dissected to better understand and unpack the phrase

"We want a seat at the table (meza)!" 

FACT families dive into addressing matters of inequality by considering:

ecosystems, social systems, & support systems. 

Micro-learning activities include storytelling through poetry, visual arts projects, & more!

Technique of the Week

Our Community

by #FACT2genart KY Families 2020 (poem excerpt)

"Our community has many textures

Wood, metal, concrete, bricks, grass, dirt, rocks, & trees surround our neighborhoods"

Kindness kindles kinship and kinship kindles a sense of community.”
― Abhijit Naskar
