It's a wrap! Our Youth Council 2022 Artivism program has concluded and it was a thrill to meet so many incredibly talented students! Thank you for all of your hard work. Many thanks to our amazing teaching artist Lorain Khalil Rihan who had a tremendous impact on the students.
"These past weeks have been amazing and life-changing," said Artivism student Jasmine. "I would like to give a special shout out to Lorain the teaching artist for everything she has done and taught us. She was immensely an inspiration to me personally. I learned so much about youth organizing and have been inspired and moved to join Youth Council and become more involved with Mid-City CAN."
All youth participants will display their art projects at the Copley-Price YMCA in City Heights in August. Stay tuned, we will post more information about their exhibit at the Copley-Price YMCA on our social media channels.
Thank you to the sponsors of our Artivism program: Level Up SD, San Diego Unified School District, San Diego Foundation, and Price Philanthropies.
