Art making within the community setting can be a powerful way to engage, to make art accessible to a larger audience, to politicize, to increase communication between cultural groups, disseminate information, ignite empathy, and ignite action. Below are some community art events that I organized and co-facilitated.
Many Languages, One Voice (MLOV) Community Alter was created as a symbolic weaving of solidarity within immigrant communities and as an arts-based resistance to ICE.
Students explored the concept of Sankofa at the NMAAHC.
People experiencing homelessness and those in solidarity created a chalk mural to demand that the DC Council and Mayor provide the funding to end homelessness now.
This directive encouraged children to paint images of their favorite healthy foods and snacks as a part of a local university's public health event.
During a public event, we asked students and community members to discuss various social justice issues. This mural was created in response to local and national injustices.
