The trip as a whole mirrored the intention behind the piece of “community”. What we were doing in South Africa was exactly what the piece is about. Taking risks, receiving and giving support, building community cross-culturally.

The Propelling Voice Project in South Africa was support by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Sister City grant awarded to Ben Levine.
