Tucson Cares, Tucson Shares

“Tucson Cares, Tucson Shares” is a new collaboration designed to develop literacy skills, meaningful self-expression, and the amplification young people’s experiences during the pandemic.

In the artistic spirit of COVID-19 “healing & relief efforts,” the Fox Tucson Theater is partnering with Literacy Connects’ Stories That Soar! program to invite young people to share their stories and unique perspectives of our current times.  Select stories will be professionally produced for the community.

Here’s how it works:

  • Young people (ages 5-18) reflect on their experience of the pandemic, and from that place get creative!
  • Write, draw, record, photograph, video… the sky’s the limit.
  • Younger storytellers can get help with writing, but please make sure the words are those of the child.
  • Upload your submissions here.
  • You will be notified if your story is selected

We believe the youth have a right to be heard, and our community has a need to hear and consider their voices. We thank you in advance for your participation!
