“The Art+Education and Community Practice program has meaningfully merged my understanding of art, education, and activism in a way that is relevant and actionable in my life. After being involved in the program I feel more empowered to use art to open up questions and imagine new possibilities. I was given a space to critically delve into important issues concerning what it means to make art as an activist alongside a group of similar-minded individuals who all had a genuine passion for these topics and who were consciously invested in growth, dialogue, and introspection. I experienced the value and complexity of what it means to learn and work collectively in a creative process to realize common ideas, a growth experience that will benefit me in all areas of my life. The educators with whom I worked with in the program were immensely supportive of my and my peers’ interests and pursuits, and it was clear that they genuinely cared about our well-being and lives.”
