ARTIVISM: Art as Activism
Youth grapple with issues of racial and social justice every day. Our newest program gives middle and high school students dynamic opportunities to address these issues head-on and advocate for change. Local professional artists guide the students as they express their thoughts through original artwork, poetry, and performance pieces. Projects have included a large-scale movable mural on fence posts, an original multi-disciplinary theater piece performed at Moody Performance Hall, and a deeply moving storytelling and photography exhibition.
2018 Artivism Program schedule: 1-5pm, June 18, June 25, July 2, July 16, and Tuesday – Friday, July 31 – August 17. Performances on August 16, 17 and 18.
