Alive is a collaborative experiment that aims to foster connectivity in our current reality.

The past year has been a difficult and lonely period for many and this project aimed to bring joy and importance into participants lives. Furthermore, it is a collection of thoughts and feelings that we have all experienced. Alive reaffirms to readers and viewers that they are not alone in their struggles.

We all deserve to be heard. Alive gave a voice to anyone that wanted to express themselves through written word and allowed for a raw and unguided expression using digital collage by the artist. The poems and illustrations were compiled into an anthology and printed as physical booklets that were distributed to each participant.

The written works share common themes of love and loss, personal struggles and celebrations, and questioning the reality we find ourselves in. There is beauty in the strength to preserve and overcome. Hopefully, Alive will empower you as well.
