Living Voices Programs
We tour 11 historical programs statewide and nationally. These programs highlight the following: Anne Frank and the Holocaust (Through the Eyes of a Friend), Immigration through Ellis Island (New American & Island of Hope), Northwest history (Northwest Passages), Great Depression/Dust Bowl (Journey from the Dust), The Internment of Japanese-Americans (Within the Silence) , Native American Boarding Schools/WWII Codetalkers (Native Vision), The Civil Rights Movement (The Right to Dream), The Migrant Farmworkers Movement (La Causa), Revolutionary War (Our Revolution), and the Womens' Suffrage Movement (Hear My Voice).
We are primarily supported by our performance fees which are paid by our clients but we work closely with Seattle Public Schools, King County Library System, as well as local museums and corporations to bring our programs to under-served and under-funded communities in Washington. We also work with out-of-state school districts, corporations, and foundations which fund outreach to their communities.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Recently, Living Voices produced it's first historical production outside of the 20th Century by bringing to life the experience of an African-American soldier during the Revolutionary War in our production titled Our Revolution. The program has received great accolades and has earned many returning clients.
We currently need is to raise funds to produce our next program on the Civil War - which will premiere in 2-4 years depending on when grants and individual donations are secured. We listen to the needs of our clients when we choose what historical era and experience to bring to life. The Civil War is a curriculum mandate in the schools, therefore we will put our creative team to work in order to bring this chapter of American History to life! Your support is greatly appreciated!!
