Reimagining Human Rights
Join Art and Resistance Through Education (ARTE) as we explore and create simple art pieces as we reimagine 2021 and beyond through the intersection of arts and human rights activism (artivism) and the social imagination.
We’ll be focusing on mass incarceration and immigration. ARTE works to amplify the voices of young people for human rights change through the visual arts.
Please have a few pieces of paper and pencils or markers or pens available.
