Our Voices Matter: A Community-Based Social Justice Art Exhibition
Intersections Gallery and Hallways
Students, teachers, and school leaders come together with Kent State University and Art for Resistance Through Change (ART-C) in this intergenerational art exhibition to promote meaningful change. Artists encourage the public to actively engage in addressing diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.
In order to create this powerful work, artists engaged in a myriad of activities ranging from: (a) read books regarding characters who overcame a myriad of obstacles and were asked to think about what matters to them and how they overcome their obstacles; (b) focused on issues facing their communities, lived experiences, and strengths they bring to their communities; and (c) chose a topic they deemed significant to K-12 education through their research, examined these issues/concerns, and translated their new understandings into artmaking.
