Project Attica recently teamed up with Purposefully Pretty, Inc., at the Afrikan Poetry Theatre in Jamaica, Queens for an afternoon of artivism. We were able to have a meaningful conversation about police violence and mass incarceration in the context of art and empowerment. Together we created wearable canvas' and had a great afternoon of socially conscious art.
Thanks to Purposefully Pretty for hosting our workshop. We look forward to working with you all again in the near future and to many more artivist workshops in the Jamaica, Queens community.
Here are some pictures of our artivist workshop:
