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)!"

ecosystems, social systems, & support systems.
Micro-learning activities include storytelling through poetry, visual arts projects, & more!
