Artivism Pilot Program
The project was birthed out of the Mayor's Office of Resilience and Racial Equity, in partnership with:
- the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture, and
- artist collective, the Artist Initiative for Revolution.
At Artivism, students will learn how to use their art (music, dance, creating writing, and visual art) for social change. Each student will be paired with a leading teaching artist who will advise and mentor them in the work of “Artivism”. We will explore the role of art for community’s sake. The week-long program will culminate with a documentary film. The film will feature all the young artists, public officials, and figures who are committed to the revitalization of Boston’s arts and culture scene. It will premiere in early June at the Strand Theatre.
