Writers Room is a College of Arts and Sciences initiative at the Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships, Drexel’s urban extension center at 35th and Spring Garden in West Philadelphia. Members of the Mantua, Powelton, and Drexel communities explore writing as a tool for learning and a mode of creative expression.
After receiving a prestigious NEA grant, Writers Room approahced us to create a visual identity and website. Working within a limited budget, we created an online tool that gives them an online prescence, acts as a digital archive for member work, promotes their events and offerings and allows them to continue to seek out funding.
In Sept. of 2016 we will work with them to produce a short documentary film about their grand opening event which will feature keynote speakers including a noteable Zora Neale Hurston scholar, Writers Room founders and a parade featuring the storied West Philly's own West Powelton Steppers drumline.
