Artists and Communities Working Together for Change
Art is a critical tool to bring underground community stories to light and shift to a societal narrative that values everyone, not only the wealthy and powerful.
Based on our powerful storytelling process, we plan a multiplatform campaign
led by artists and youth to create a vision for a post-crisis city where everyone thrives.
We will engage the transformative power of arts and culture to advance equity
in our communities and our city.
We invite you to be part of the visioning and artmaking process by:
• Sharing your stories and vision in a story circle
• Joining as a youth artist, youth mentor, artist or apprentice artist
• Becoming a media, advocacy, or funding partner
• Joining the planning, organizing and peer fundraising teams
• Sharing the campaign with your networks
• Making a donation
