Art is the Revolution!

A fundraising campaign for OPEN DOORS - a project of CTA

Greetings OPEN DOORS Family,


OPEN DOORS and #NursingHomeLivesMatter continue growing momentum during the final months before the release of our greatest project, Fire Through Dry Grass. You’ve been hearing about this film for a while, and we’re almost there! The effort and talent this has required from the Reality Poets is something I could never have imagined, and I am overwhelmingly proud of us. 


With your support, we will make sure FIRE is seen in as many homes as possible so that real change happens in nursing homes! 


– OPEN DOORS Director Vincent Pierce


We are alive, we try things

We make mistakes, we stumble we fall

We get hurt, we rise again, we try again

We keep learning, we keep growing

And we are thankful for this priceless opportunity 

Called life. 


– We Humans, Are Not Perfect, by Francene Benjamin
