Artivism Summer Showcase
August 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Youth grapple with issues of racial and social justice every day. Artivism, Big Thought’s newest youth development program gives middle and high school students the opportunity to address the racial and social justice issues, concerns and they also experience — and then advocate for change. Local professional artists guide youth as they express their thoughts through original artwork, poetry, and performance pieces.
“The Anatomy of an Activist”: Exhibit and Presentation
Artivism is a unique pairing of activism through an artistic voice. Dallas area youth identify a social justice issue they are passionate about, and then work together to create and curate an artistic experience to express their point of view. “The Anatomy of an Activist” exhibit features several elements:
- self portrait photography gallery with audio recordings
- digital art
- spoken word
- theatrical performance
