PlayWrite, Inc. 
Website for a Portland non-profit that works with Youth at the Edge
We were privileged to work with Portland non-profit PlayWrite, Inc. to recreate their website from scratch. PlayWrite works with youth ‘at the edge’ to create original plays, powerful vehicles through which young peoples' voices are heard. The young participants collaborate with theatre professionals throughout the process of crafting a play, from character development to directing professional actors. In the process, the participants learn to trust, manage, and heal their own emotional experiences; to work collaboratively; and to contribute positively to their communities.

PlayWrite’s old website didn’t communicate the good work they do, and it contained almost no evidence of the artistic output of the participants. It was also hard for staff to update. Blue Mouse Monkey’s overhaul of the website includes a new look and feel, expanded and organized content, and a complete archive of all plays and songs, with image and video support. The easy to use CMS (content management system) enables staff to keep the site as a alive as the work they do.
