More than a rap sheet returns to Salt

Please join us Thursday, October 11 at 5:30pm in honoring Domestic Violence Awareness Month next Thursday at Salt with a project by Family Crisis Services. For one night only, we will be bringing back one of our most talked about exhibits: More Than a Rap Sheet [ the real stories of incarcerated women in Maine ]. We are showcasing the raw and powerful poems by incarcerated women in Maine as well as their portraits by our very own alum Christine Heinz. We invite you to take in the images, read the poems and also to stick around for a short program of live poetry readings that will begin around 6pm. It only happens just this once, so don’t miss it!

Producer and Salt alum launches Faith in the Five Boroughs

Check out Faith in the Five Boroughs — a new project produced by Salt alum Matt Ozug and his wife Julia Elliot, along with Scott Elliot [all of 590 Films]. The project, funded through a grant from the Knight Foundation, documents the role that faith and religious communities play in the lives of immigrants and their children in the five boroughs of NYC.

And you have another story in mind, Matt says “Over the next year, we will continue to add stories and grow the site. If you have an idea for a faith community, compelling individual, or religious festival, we’d love to hear it.”

Please support this project by evangelizing! LIKE Five Boroughs on Facebook!
