Spreading #Artivism: Thanks for sending us to Chiapas, Mexico to spread some #ArtLove

Project Attica recently established partnerships with local organizations in Chiapas, Mexico and conducted Artivism workshops in the community and contribute in the work to maintain indigenous cultural heritage in the face of growing violence and opposition. 

Since 2011, Project Attica has brought Artivism - a free, dynamic, visual art, interactive workshop to to students in NYC. Click here to see where our work has taken us. Held in middle schools, high schools and community organizations in New York City and abroad, Artivism provides participants with a space to create works of art by expressing their views about social justice issues on wearable canvases. Our costs are defrayed by grants and individual donations.

Thanks to generous donations from folks that supported our Kickstarter campaign we were able to raise funds for the trip. Check out our Instagram page here and our Facebook page here. View our thank you video to all those who've shown their love and support!
