The Global Village Project is a school in Decatur, Georgia dedicated to ensuring that refugee girls who have had interrupted schooling or no schooling at all are prepared to enter high school or equivalency programs.
Allegory is creating an ongoing series at the school where these girls’ stories will be recorded in their own words via audio, animated and released as 2-5 minute viral videos online with a call to action for donations going back to the school. We’ve procured a broad list of artists to help us draw these girls lives, ranging from fine artists to famous comic book artists, street artists and multi-media artists.
The plan is to loop in each artist’s own fan base for maximum distribution. We will pair this with a merchandising line of t-shirts that will generate revenue for Allegory and GVP. We are also partnering with Kennesaw State University, who will provide drama student interns to enable the girls to find the story they want to tell and use the English they’ve learned to tell it.
We want these young ladies to exercise their agency in the world by being able to tell their own stories and to show them that the arts can take their words to millions of people they never thought they could reach.
