ARTIVISM 101

  A Message & A Cause!

speak up youth pngDo you have a message that’s meaningful to you or a cause that you want to champion?

Maybe you’re passionate about social justice issues such as LGBTQ student rights, women’s rights, immigration reform, racial justice, gender representation in the media and more.

Perhaps you’re concerned about the environmental issues such as fracking, access to clean water and food, climate change, etc.

It could be that you’re more focused on local issues such as Seattle’s minimum wage, SPD reform, high school dropout rates in Seattle, Duamish River cleanup, etc.

 

Put Your Passion Into Action

Whatever it is that matters to you, we want to help you translate your passion into action.

With the help of the awesome youth-led Seattle organization, PugetSoundOff, the University Branch, the Greenwood Branch, and the Queen Anne Branch are all offering the FREE workshop, Artivism 101.

During this workshop, you’ll identify an issue that you care about, you’ll take a photo of something to represent your cause (cameras are provided), and instructors will teach you PhotoShop so that you can edit your photo and overlay your message.

This is a great opportunity to get involved in activism, make art that matters, and have fun while creating something meaningful with other Seattle teens.

Oh, and did I mention that there will be PIZZA?!

These workshops are for teens, 11 and up.
