2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Erika will develop an after-school graphic design and stipend screen-print training program for immigrant youth living in South Philadelphia. Housed at Juntos, the program will be taught by Erika and local artists through a series of bilingual lesson plans which will be stored in an archive on Juntos’ website for free public use. By providing participants with the tools to create their own images, Erika hopes to develop future artistic leaders for Juntos that will raise consciousness around issues affecting queer and/or immigrant communities and other communities of color. As a final capstone, Juntos youth will host their own open house event and lead their own mini workshop for members of their community, for which they will each be paid.
