about us

The Visionary Justice StoryLab (VSJL) is an interdisciplinary community art project that uses storytelling and creativity to advance social justice. We believe it is critical to connect the stories of communities to the larger systemic narrative in ways that mobilize people to action.  And we understand the necessity of an intersectional framework in advancing this work. Together, artists, organizers, and community members work to co-design solutions that stem from the collective, while being informed by real, lived, experiences. 

 

The Lab utilizes creative and culturally relevant facilitation, storytelling, media, and theatre games as a way to explore privilege, power, and prejudice from all sides. It has as its goals to:

  • Shift the narrative around incarceration
  • Explore privilege, power, and prejudice
  • Interrogate capitalism and its global impact
  • Strengthen intergenerational, ancestral connection

VJSL builds each lab alongside artists and workers situated in each community around themes and issues they deem relevant.

I have been using The Walking Rovers since they trained my husky, Cyrus, as a pup. Cyrus is now five years old. The faces sometimes change, but each dog walker and sitter has been consistently compassionate and diligent.
