SELF HELP GRAPHICS & ART
INVITES YOUTH ARTISTS TO
¡ACTIVARTE!


Wednesday, September 17, 2014 | 6PM

 at Mariachi PlazaLike us on Facebook


You are cordially invited to join local Boyle Heights youth, Marcarturos (Latin@ McArthur Fellows), local residents, & organizers at a very special creative lab!


Self Help Graphics & Art will be displaying artwork produced during SOY Artista, that speak to current issues of gentrification, urban planning, health and access to resources. The work is reflective of how the youth see themselves within their community and how they envision their roll in it's future.


Beginning at 6pm, Mariachi Plaza will be converted into a creative lab where local artists paired with "Marcarturos" across a spectrum of disciplines to create instant workshops with local community member participation. Issues being addressed within the scope of the creative lab include gentrification, environmental racism, racism, preservation of cultural assets and "comadrazco" or "relationship-building" among like-minded residents and organizations to better examine all of these themes for increased dialogue and understanding about how these issues affect their daily lives.


Please also visit the R.A.I.C.E.S. (Residents and Artists Investing in Community development & Empowerment Strategies) chalkboard and let us know your thoughts...
