We were once again invited by Validus Prep in the Bronx to conduct an Artivist workshop. Validus Preparatory Academy in the Bronx is one of a number of city schools using restorative justice practices like student justice panels that are meant to provide useful alternatives to punitive discipline.

They provide services to homeless youth by providing holistic services aimed at trauma reduction and safety.  We had an amazing workshop and the youth were very engaged in expressing their ideas about drug addiction and homelessness through the artivism concept.

Help bring Project Attica to Cheraw, SC to participate in #StopTheViolence Basketball Tournament during Labor Day Weekend 2016!

Project Attica has been invited once again to collaborate with the group Stop The Violence in their basketball tournament this coming Labor Day weekend in Cheraw, South Carolina.  We will be working with students from Cheraw High School and Malboro county in an Artivist workshop where students will make their own t-shirts and following this they will participate in the basketball tournament.  We are raising funds in order for us to provide the artivist workshop in South Carolina so that students there can learn how social justice and art can be combined to empower them.

We will conduct the artivist workshop with students from Cheraw High School and Malboro County and then we will collaborate with the Stop the Violence basketball tournament. The first part of the program will consist of students learning about the concept of artivism through an interactive workshop involving media presentations and group activities.

The interactive workshop will foster creativity, teamwork, and critical thinking. Students will learn about how art furthers social justice movements and have opportunities to identify subject areas that they would like to express through art. We will explore topics such as: current and past events that have mobilized underrepresented communities, civil rights, LGBTQ struggles, immigration, environmentalism, stop and frisk (including a know your rights segment), and, most importantly, topics that the students study and discuss independently in their own groups. After this presentation, the groups will meet again as a class to create a list of the issues that they would like to address through art. The presentation will end with a step-by-step explanation of how to create a stencil design and transpose it to a t-shirt. 

Anthony Posada, a staff attorney with the Legal Aid’s Society Community Justice Unit, started Project Attica in 2011 while he was in law school.  The Project’s goal is to use the arts to educate the public on the impacts of mass incarceration. Since its creation, Project Attica has taught artivism workshops to New York City youths and community members and also internationally bringing the workshop to Colombia.
