Our Voices

Each year, InToto gives voice to participating artists through a public facing showcase.  Visual arts, creative writing, theater, and creative movement pieces are developed under the guidance of InToto teaching artists during our weekly classes and presented to the larger Birmingham community.  Our Voices is an opportunity for InToto artists to show off their creations and to earn income through an 80% commission on art sales.   This public facing community event is a time to celebrate the power of the arts as a tool for catharsis and therapeutic healing and to recognize the immense impact on these lives.  Our hope that these events are helping to break down preconceptions around homelessness, incarceration, and mental illness in our city.   Our Voices brings people together that may not otherwise get a chance to listen or learn from each other.   We want to live in a community where we are not judged by the hardships that we face, but are honored for our creative contributions, and Our Voices brings us closer to this dream.

Our Voices

Each year, InToto gives voice to participating artists through a public facing showcase.  Visual art, creative writing, theater, music, and creative movement works are developed under the guidance of InToto teaching artists during our weekly classes and presented to the larger Birmingham community.  Our Voices is an opportunity for InToto artists to show off their creations and to earn income through an 80% commission on art sales.   This event is open to all and is a time to celebrate the power of the arts as a tool for catharsis and therapeutic healing and to recognize the immense impact on these lives.  We have found that these community gatherings are helping to break down preconceptions around stigmatized issues like homelessness, incarceration, and mental illness in our city.   Our Voices brings people together that may not otherwise get a chance to listen to or learn from each other.   We want to live in a community where we are not judged by the hardships that we face, but are honored for our creative contributions, and Our Voices is helping to bring us closer to this dream.
