A New Chapter for ArtVentures: Introducing Artists for Social Change
This year we have seen many social issues brought to the forefront, including systemic racism, voter suppression, gun violence, climate change, and the list goes on.
Our work at Carpe Diem Arts has always been focused on creating opportunities for artists of diverse backgrounds to unite, energize and inspire individuals and communities through the arts. We see our role as creating a safe space for personal growth and dialogue, allowing the arts to bring us together, from all backgrounds, ages, and walks of life.
To that end, we are adapting our "ArtVentures" initiative to create an Artists for Social Change program, employing visual, literary and performing artists to serve as guides to others in their learning journey---breaking down barriers, helping individuals and communities build agency, and providing an outlet for creative expression to better understand and reflect the world around us.
If you are interested in participating in Artists for Social Change, either as an artist, workshop participant, or program host, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
