Projects Coffee with Strangers April 2013 to Present Members:Vanesa Parker I want to capture a soul. I want to touch a life. I want to be in a city where I don't know where I will be sleeping that night. I want to buy you coffee and listen to what no one else will, no matter your sexuality. I am a director, a friend, a lover, a sister, a daughter, a godmother, sometimes a sarcastic little monster, a couchsurfer, a creator, a part-time barista, and a full-time dreamer. Using various forms of transportation, my goal is to travel throughout twelve cities in the states, twenty-four local coffee shops, and meet fifty strangers through classifieds, flyers, word of mouth, social media, and – most importantly – just walking up face to face and introducing myself to someone. I want to buy you a cup of coffee and capture your stories. From these experiences, I want to begin sharing what I've learned with as many people as possible. So, after everything is created, the art will be put together in a book entitled Coffee with Strangers: Brewing for a Purpose. Seven percent of the book sales proceeds will be donated to benefit the Human Rights Campaign (HRC works to ensure LGBT people of their basic equal rights and helps them to be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community). Coffee with Strangers will be created in hopes of it becoming a way to show that no matter your qualities you are a puzzle piece to the universe. It also aspires to expose how art and communication can bring you closer to others to create and inspire. My dream is to bring exposure to the positive aspects of reality (while still being aware of the good and the bad) and to show that people are never really alone in how they feel; rather, they just haven't met the strangers who share their feelings. Ultimately, I want to give a voice to those who have ever felt alone.
