Feedback form is now closed.

Art has always been a catalyst of social change and revolution, but how can art be used to create lasting impact in our communities, especially in this political climate?

In this workshop, participants will experience the Activate Framework, a structure for engaging youth, educators and community organizations.  This  process of participatory artmaking will respond to critical social and political issues, aimed at creating lasting change in their communities.  Led by digital natives, we will use media examples from the Trump administration as prompts to develop artistic campaigns, in a manner accessible to all.
