2015 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Over the span of six months, Erika will hold a series of workshops focused on teaching immigrant and queer youth of color the printmaking skills necessary to create visual artwork that speaks of their own lived truth. Participants will be taught grassroots organizing tools, informed of current social issues, and encouraged to challenge the status quo by creating art around themes of race, immigration, gender, and sexuality. This collaborative workshop series will culminate in a free, public art show that aims to raise the consciousness of the general public around the complex and multifaceted identities that make up LGBTQ and/or immigrant communities.
