Over Labor Day Weekend, Project Attica was invited to collaborate with the group Stop the Violence in their basketball tournament in Cheraw, SC. Stop the Violence is an organization that annually conducts basketball tournaments in Cheraw that engage all the neighboring counties in an effort to build community through sports while also spreading the message of peace and non-violence. We supported the tournament by inviting the community to come and create a peace-based artivist t-shirt in commemoration of the day's theme to end violence. Check out the photos below!
Since 2011, Project Attica has brought Artivism – a free, dynamic, visual art, interactive workshop to students in New York City. Held in middle schools, high schools and community organizations in the city, Artivism provides students with a space to create works of art by expressing their views about social justice issues on wearable canvases.
