Project Attica in South Carolina

For the fourth year, we will have the opportunity to share our Artivism workshop in support of Take It To The Court Foundation, Inc. non-violence basketball tournament in Cheraw, South Carolina on September 1st.

Taking Project Attica into South Carolina has allowed us to connect with youth and communities and build networks with teachers, advocates and local leaders. 

About 250 young people of Cheraw have participated in the workshops with creations that advocate nonviolence, the abolition of racism and the eradication of the use of weapons.

We are really happy to visit them again and raise our voices together through artivism.

#StopTheViolence Basketball Tournament

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. Thanks for the support! We hope to see you then!
