“Breakin’Bricks will open the doors for Tulsans to interrogate societal practices that do harm and hinder. It invites them to invest in the future by imagining a Tulsa that does not perpetuate racial divide, inequity or oppression, and rather actively works toward the development of an equitable field for all.
In the research process, I found the conversation with members of the community gave me a deeper understanding of the city and its citizens… There was a significant shift in my creative process while interviewing Tulsans from different cultural backgrounds. Their voices are the spine of the work.
For me, Breakin’Bricks is about breaking down walls between people in a segmented society. The title is about awareness, rebuilding and finding communal support.”
