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!
We will take part in this powerful day dedicated to educating students on the consequences of violence throughout interactive workshops.
