Reframe Art & Literary Magazine
CIP’s Reframe Art & Literary Magazine represents the combined efforts of the students at our six centers across the United States. This work encompasses the creativity, enthusiasm and vision of our amazing students. Their stories, poems, art and photography evolve from their hearts and the unique way they experience the world.
Each of their roads has been full of pitfalls and struggles. Searching to find their place in the world, they have arrived at the present with emotional strengths and deficits, supporters and detractors, and accumulated years of experience both positive and negative.
At CIP they have the opportunity to “reframe” their past and take forward what they like, leaving the rest behind. They get to re-define themselves: learning what their assets are, what knowledge and skills they need to learn, and start on a new path. Upon understanding and accepting who they really are, as being made exactly that way “for a good purpose”, they become “self change agents” and go after what they want in their lives. We thank all of you who support them in their journeys, and hope you’ll enjoy the fruits of their labor.
