Jason Wyman is many things. He is a life-long educator, writer, performer, and cultural producer. He is an experimental writer performing critiques of permanence, acceptance, death, and transcendence. He also facilitates arts and wellness workshops and experiences through 14 Black Poppies, revives the collective spirits of the LGBTQIA communities through OutLook Theater Project, and transforms his body into the Illustrated Man 2.0 where each tattoo tells a fable.
Jason has performed at Gathering the Embers, The News, Poetry Mission: The New Shit Show, the Ocean Avenue Art Walk, Try SOME THING, This Is What I Want Festival, and other community events. His writing appears at In Our Words, A Salon for Queers and Company, Mission Local, and the Western Edition. Jason was also the featured chef at Feast of Word’s Feast with Ben making a delectable roasted tomato bread pudding.
As a consummate connector, his skillful networking, which is rooted in compassion and creativity, has brought over a million dollars of in-kind services and peer-based education to communities across the San Francisco Bay Area with a special emphasis on marginalized communities, youth, seniors and cultural workers. He has worked for OMI/Excelsior Beacon Center, California School-Age Consortium, The Partnership for Children and Youth, San Francisco Unified School District, Youth Development Peer Network/Youth Worker: Collective, Adobe Youth Voices, and the YMCA.
Originally from Minnesota, he has called San Francisco home for over 18 years.
