Please join us for the culmination of the Fall 2016 Community Arts Internship Program. The exhibition artists, participants of the Young Queens on the Rise program of Mission Girls, practice creativity as a vehicle for activism. Informed by their personal experiences, they turn a critical eye to universal issues like state-sanctioned violence, racism, and violence against women.
About the Community Arts Internship Program (CAIP)
Offering young artists and activists the opportunity to exercise leadership skills and engage with their community by exploring relevant social and personal issues through the visual arts. CAIP is designed to provide youth interns with valuable job training in arts organizing, activism, and community engagement. The weekly workshops guided the Young Queens through the process of formulating an idea, researching and investigating the topic, designing an action plan, and implementing a community-based arts project.
