"Nadir" is a multidisciplinary art project that explores the concept of ancestry.  Teaching artist Jessica Freites created a performative work of art with teens from Urgent Inc. and Girl Power over the course of 6 weeks. Participants incorporated storytelling, installation and performance to discover ideas surrounding their identity and influence on the future. Working collaboratively, the teens drew from their life experiences to ask,  "what lessons do we have to share with future generations?"
