Artivism Student Program Hosted by The City of Boston Equity and Inclusion Racial Justice Cabinet

Children ages 12-17 are invited | No charge | Registration required | Artivism Student Project focuses on the power of youth voice and art as a tool for social inquiry.

In artivism, students learn how to use their art (music, dance, creating writing, and visual art) for social change. Each student is paired with a leading teaching artist who will advise and mentor them in the work of “Artivism”. We will explore the role of art for the community’s sake.

In its second year the Artivism Student Project 2023, an initiative that focuses on the power of youth voice and art as a tool for social inquiry, students will focus on Black People on the rise. This program will grant young artists across the City of Boston from ages 12 – 17 to engage in meaningful art-making rooted in storytelling and social justice. At Artivism, students learned how to use their art (music, dance, creating writing, & visual art) for social change. Each student was paired with a leading teaching artist who advised and mentored them in the work of “Artivism”.
