Arts/Activism: Visual Change & Strategic Expression
Organizing spaces — especially those that are youth-centered and youth-driven — often talk about the need to use art as activism. Art has the power to build bridges across differences, heal trauma, and strengthen communities in the fight for equity and justice; art has the power to become the symbols of a revolution. However, in order to create this kind of symbolic movement art, some strategic planning is in order for marginalized youth. Participants will learn how to identify their goals (artistically and movement-wide), find their audience, and pick the most impactful medium. No prior artistic experience is necessary.
