June 2014, The Foundation for Art In Motion in collaboration with CTM Sisters Productions, Mano Films and BK Style Foundation and Friends of Hope Intl., conducted art, photography and filmmaking workshops in the Dominican Republic’s sugarcane fields of Batey 106. Led by American artists/ filmmakers Theo Dora, Monica Watkins, Emmanuel Alexandre Jr., Omar Perez and Liony Batista, Batey 106 Project’s goal is to empower the children, teens and young adults of Batey 106 using the arts, photography and filmmaking as a tool to cultivate creativity. In addition, Batey 106 Project’s goals include gathering resources and finding sustainable solutions to the community issues of malnutrition, a lack of irrigation for community farming and deficits in the education system and teaching staff for the community school.
