As the year comes to a close, we’re grateful for the bright spots we’ve had in a difficult and tumultuous year. We know we wouldn’t have accomplished all we did in 2021 without the help of our community. From our participants and their families, to our teachers, volunteers, and supporters, thank you for joining us, holding us up, and being there with us.

If you missed any of our 2021 happenings, you can catch them all in the links below!

  • We hosted an event featuring award-winning author and MacArthur Fellow N. K. Jemisin in conversation with three Octavia Project alumni.
  • We launched a brand new Summer Camp for middle schoolers and ran our 7th annual Summer Institute for teens. 
  • Our programs ended with our Summer Showcase, an evening full of readings and presentations from our Summer Institute class of 2021.
  • And, we published the second volume of Octavia Project: Positive Obsessions, our zine featuring participants’ games, poetry, artwork, and more. 

We look forward to sharing our plans for summer 2022 in the new year.  In the meantime, we wish you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday season!
