2022 Program Information
Art is advocacy. Art is organizing.
The Youth Council's Artivism Program is a fun and informative 3-week youth power curriculum centered on youth leadership and activism. This hybrid program explores how art is used to tell the stories of our communities and the important role it plays in our history and social justice movements.
Students will have the opportunity to learn about several famous social justice artists who have helped memorialize important social movements, political moments, and the experiences of people of color. In addition, students will also learn the fundamentals of government systems: how government works, advocacy, policy, and leadership.
This program is geared for high school youth ages 13-18 and is also open to students who will be enrolled in San Diego Unified School District in the Fall 2022.
The summer program will have two sessions:
- Session 1: June 21 - July 8 (3 weeks)
- Session 2: July 11 - July 29 (3 weeks)
DAY: Tuesday - Friday
TIME: 2 pm to 5 pm
