Art for Social Change Program for Youth
http://updates.phennd.org/ 2008/10/art-for-social-change- program-for-youth/

We are excited to share an exciting opportunity with you, and the young people you work with. The University Community Collaborative of Philadelphia is partnering with the Philadelphia Museum of Art to offer ART FOR SOCIAL CHANGE, an opportunity for youth to use ART as a tool to explore and reflect on the challenges facing our society. Through critical thinking activitie s! and workshops in storytelling and music, writing and quilting, we are seeking to create a space to think about positive social change in our communities.

ART FOR SOCIAL CHANGE will include a range of activities designed to complement the Museum’s Special Exhibit, “Gee’s Bend: the Architecture of the Quilt” (http://www.philamuseum.org/exhibitions/311.html).

ART FOR SOCIAL CHANGE will be comprised of three consecutive Wednesday afternoon workshops starting October 22, held at Temple University, and special trip to the Museum on Sunday, November 2nd. We are looking to engage 15 young people between the ages of 14 and 21. If you, or someone you know, is interested in participating, please contact Catalina Gonzalez at 215.204.6185 or catalinagonzalez@temple.edu. Space is limited and pre-registration is required by Friday October 17th.

Thank so much for helping us connect young people to this exciting opportunity.
