breaking walls, a non-profit, international creative writing and performance initiative, empowers youth to discover their voice, and offers them a platform on which to use it. breaking walls relies on partners, sponsors, mentors, volunteers and friends to engage, empower and support young people as they become creative artists and empathetic leaders of tomorrow who actively advance personal transformation and social change on the global stage and within their home communities.
At breaking walls our artists are our writer-performers, and our ambassadors are youth facilitators who were once artists themselves. Each breaking walls artist and ambassador is a part of a forum where young voices are creatively represented and nurtured on the path to leadership. breaking walls envisions a peaceful world without discrimination cultivated by our artists and ambassadors.
