Living Documents
One of the functions of art is to give people the words to know their own experience… Storytelling is a tool for knowing who we are and what we want.
— Ursula la Guin

Living Documents Publishing is a Not for Profit publishing and production house that receives and processes text and visual material for distribution and documentation. We pay for stories and images from individuals from  the edges, on the periphery, and on the front line.

The vision of LDP is to share knowledge through face to face encounters between diverse communities by means of arts based collaboration. We believe that each individual can benefit from intentional interactions between individuals from seemingly divergent areas of society. It LDP's mandate to use the arts as bridge that facilitates those encounters.

Ultimately, we believe that it is through these encounters that individuation and self realization occurs. We believe that the creative process is key to social progress and healing.
