Giving Hope Away
About the Project
Working in Philadelphia, Sinema White brought her neighbors together to express their daily struggles and triumphs through song. In her project Giving Hope Away to the Community she held sessions to facilitate communication and expression between participants to create a common understanding of the things they all experience. From the stories, an album was created and played throughout the laundromat to create a more understanding, positive environment.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sinema is a young but accomplished artist who has been promoting social change and communication though various art forms for the past five years. Believing that communication is a strong component in building positive communities, she has incorporated music into her latest project as she encourages residents to share their struggles and adversities through song, giving them the opportunity to have their story heard while understanding that others go through the same thing. Sinema is creating legacies with communities that all give the same message; that it’s ok and as a community, we’ll get through this together.
