Grateful...is the only word that rises to the surface when we think about this year.



GRATEFUL for all of the warm, wonderful, inspiring people we had the honor to serve this year.

GRATEFUL for the schools, programs and institutions we had the privilege to partner with. They are each facing so many challenges this year. But it gives us hope to see how they persevere every day and continue to serve their communities with grace, vision and endless compassion.

We are also GRATEFUL to the foundations, organizations and individuals that granted us the resources to not just survive as an organization, but to grow and expand our mission this year.

It is miraculous in so many ways that we are here at all.

 WAV’s mission is to

AMPLIFY TO EMPOWER

underrepresented voices through creativity, 

and to assemble safe spaces for people to

SHARE, LEARN AND HEAL TOGETHER.

Process

Guided by a team of creative professionals WAV leads trauma-informed conversations with small groups of 8-10 participants.

 

The themes and words from these conversations are then used by the WAV production team to create songs, videos, and artwork.

 

Then we share on streaming platforms to carry their conversations to the broader community.
