The In[HEIR]itance Project

In 2015, actor/playwright Jon Adam Ross received a Signature Grant from The Covenant Foundation to create The Initance Project and answer the question: If we allowed communities behind the scenes of an artistic process as collaborators from the very beginning, could the artistic process become the product, with the finished art piece being just another element of a dynamic, communal exploration of inherited and lived narrative?
