Still We Rise

NORA VALDEZ

APRIL 10 - JUNE 14

Artist Nora Valdez's ten-week youth project revolved around the theme of personal resilience and sustainability focusing on art-making as an act of healing. Many local youth have been subjected to various kinds of violence including domestic, bullying, psychological, and the violence of discrimination. Through writing, drawing, and 3D art-making Valdez and students explored times of strength and healing, discovering their own resiliency in the process. The final public installation at Urbano Project featured letters and art works that create a safe space for sharing stories and insights.
