A workshop performance from On With Living and Learning (OWLL), with original music composed by the Sociedad Latina Youth Music Ambassadors.

The full script of Humanity Not Statistics, written by Mary Driscoll with seven middle school girls from six Boston schools in collaboration with Sisters on the Move, was presented as a staged reading in Boston at the Franklin Park Zoo in spring 2016. For this workshop, OWLL has collaborated with Sociedad Latina to compose original music by the Sociedad Latina Youth Music Ambassadors, a group of 15 talented young musicians. Youth Music Ambassadors receive intensive training in music and use those skills to perform in the community and create an original CD at the end of the year.

OWLL is a collective of artists who use art for activism. OWLL brings together underrepresented women and at-risk youth with community elders and teaching artists in leadership workshops that culminate in culturally specific theater productions focusing on the social justice issues most relevant to the participants. OWLL’s collective art serves as a basis for deep community listening, transformation, and the development of a new narrative for participants’ and their communities’ future.
