Everything I Was Never Taught

Initially a live performance piece and now an online archive, Everything I Was Never Taught, explores the lived experiences of young New Yorkers seeking freedom, security, and understanding within themselves, their communities, and the world at large. It explores the many things in life that we come up against that no one could have ever prepared us for.

This collection of stories tells the untold truths of young people navigating the current complexities of the world and reflecting on the things they’re coming to understand that no one in life had been able to teach them. Stories range from the personal to political, as we know that finding oneself within the world requires both introspection and critical observation.
