Still We Rise


APRIL 10 - JUNE 14

Artist Nora Valdez's ten-week youth project revolves 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 will explore times of strength and healing, discovering their own resiliency in the process. The final public installation Urbano will feature letters and art works that create a safe space for sharing stories and insights.

The final installation will be exhibited on June 13th at Urbano Project!
