Join us for a FREE youth art drop-in! Open to youth aged 15-25, materials and snacks are provided during the workshop.
Knowing what choices and sacrifices are reasonable or unreasonable in the arts is difficult when working with little experience to compare it to. In this workshop, participants will be brought together for a collective conversation about the difficulties of deciding what personal, financial, and/or ethical lines are flexible, and which need to be held firmly. Join us as we use an intersectional justice lens to navigate how to protect ourselves and each other while working in a flawed system which so often depends on our concessions.
Reservations are required for this event and all materials will be provided. Please register through Eventbrite. If you have any questions, please email us! 🙂
The wearing of masks during this event is not mandatory, but it is encouraged.
