WHAT THE PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
“J Mase III is an exceptional, engaging and dynamic educator, consultant and performer. For years we have hired him to perform poetry, lead workshops, and design and facilitate curricula for our campus community. Mase does all of his work with great intentionality, care, and a deep commitment to intersectional social justice. Our students, too, are in awe with his brilliance and are always asking for more time with Mase!” ~ Andy Cofino, Program Coordinator at Princeton University
“Mase visited our campus to deliver his Solidarity Framework workshop, and to share his first-hand experiences with Transphobia and White Supremacy; both events were incredibly well-attended. Simply stated, Mase was an electric, engaging, and persuasive speaker, and his visit galvanized members of our University to recognize and react more quickly, and strongly, in the face of institutionalized discrimination and violence. I simply cannot recommend him highly enough as a speaker–facilitating a visit from Mase is money very well spent.” ~ John K. Sakaluk: Assistant Professor at the University of Victoria (Canada)
“J Mase is an incredible coach and facilitator. We’ve had the honor and pleasure of bringing him into our space to show artists how they can begin to develop sustainable lives from their art and creative practice. Through his insightful instruction and wisdom, participants have not only had the opportunity to see themselves in a liberated space of thriving off of their art, but they’ve bridged connections to each other’s work and and took the time to dream and build collective visions. Leeway is a forever fan of J Mase!” ~ Denise Beek, Communications Director, Leeway Foundation (leeway.org)
“Mase works with us as a consultant and facilitator for the LGBT Center’s LGBTQIA Peer Education Program and his work is simply excellent. He helped us revamp the three-day training curriculum using his broad knowledge of anti-oppression teaching tools, and students loved both the training content itself and Mase’s facilitation. Mase’s never-ending energy, skill in facilitating large and small groups, and dedication to students always makes it a pleasure to work with him. I cannot recommend Mase more highly to come work with your school!” ~ Judy Jarvis, Director, LGBT Center Princeton University
“J Mase III, certified sexy beast! (GRRR)… If you need a performer who will make you laugh ‘til you cry and then actually cry just because the poem is goddamn beautiful, make sure you check [Mase] out.” ~ Lillian Dunn, The Apiary Corp.
