Photos from our #Art and #Activism workshop at CAMBA-Beacon

We were invited by CAMBA-Beacon to conduct an Artivist workshop focused on Anti-Bullying/Anti-Violence. Project Attica conducted two workshops serving 60 participants in total.

CAMBA-Beacons are community centers serving the whole family (children and adults) and offering a variety of services and activities to enhance community engagement and healthy living. Beacons operate after school, during the evening and on weekends and represent city-wide cooperation with the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) and the Department of Education.

All of CAMBA’s Beacon Centers offer Teen ACTION programs, which seek to cultivate an ethic of service, develop life skills and critical thinking skills, develop leadership skills and promote commitment to academic achievement through a chance to engage in structured learning, service projects, and reflection.

Artivist Workshop-Purposefully Pretty- Afrikan Poetry Theatre Jamaica, Queens

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:
