A Letter from the Program Co-Directors:

Dear Families & Friends of Rising Loaves,

We are pleased to share with you our writing from our 2015 Summer Session themed “Re Envisioning Lawrence”. Our work was focused on noticing the easily unnoticeable and finding the value of what is around us, in hopes to re envision Lawrence and see ourselves as part of the history and future. The young people in this program explored their communities through writing, poetry, tours, photography, art, and more. Our many field trips and guest speakers really made the program fun and interactive. Each student made valuable and meaningful contributions to our discussions and work. As you read, think about your world, your city, and what you might forget to see. Our eyes are now open and we see more than what people think is in Lawrence! Enjoy.


Queridos familiars y amigos de Rising Loaves,

Nos da mucho gusto compartir con ustedes nuestra escritura de la sesión de verano del 2015 titulada “Visualizando a Lawrence De Nuevo”. Nuestro trabajo se ha enfocado en notar lo facilmente ignorado y encontrar el valor de lo que nos rodea, deseando visualizár a Lawrence de Nuevo y vernos como parte de la historia y el futuro. Los jovencitos en este programa han explorado sus comunidades a traves de escritura, poesía, fotografía, arte, y much mas. Nuestros viajes en la ciudad y visitantes especiales fueron de mucha diversión. Cada estudiante contribuyó de forma valorosa a nuestras discusiones y trabajo. Cuando léan, piensen en su mundo, su ciudad, y de lo que frecuentemente se olvidan. Nuestros ojos estan abiertos ahora y vemos mas allá de lo que se ve sobre Lawrence. ¡Disfruten!
