After an incredible show last fall, we’re back for another round to celebrate new voices, stories, and the art of resistance. All new performers, all new stories, all new mix of arts & activism to shake this crazy world up and make it fresh.

Led by MG Culture Shift Fellow Josh Healey, Make It Fresh is an eight-week workshop for 20 emerging writers, activists, & all-star movement-builders to write, learn, and share their stories. Stories of our neighborhoods, our struggles, our place in this crazy, beautiful environment we call home.

Join us for this one-time-only performance showcase, where the newest Make it Fresh storytellers will share their new creations with the community.

Participants are coming from groups like: Forward Together, Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN), Unite HERE 2850, Brown Boi Project, Causa Justa, Anakbayan East Bay, & many more.

We use our stories to change the larger story towards justice and ecology. We talk about pollution AND poverty. Mother Earth AND Mac Dre. We have asthma in our lungs, joy in our hearts, and we’re ready to shout our stories to the world.
