ChARTing Change showcases the stories, visions, and perspectives of youth, and highlights the important role the arts can play in envisioning and enacting better futures.
The program began with a small cohort of emerging Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour artists who had experience doing arts-based anti-oppression facilitation with youth—making a series of videos and accompanying workshops designed to engage students in critical and creative reflection, about racism and systemic inequities,
We can expect another batch of engaging videos that prompt timely and important conversations in schools soon. In early 2021, the next series of small cohort productions will begin–with a heavy emphasis on online mentorship.
The ChARTing Change Art Contest is another exciting aspect of this program. This is a creative call out to young people to ‘chart the change’ they want to see in the world, and potentially win an iPhone 11, iPad Air, or Air Pods in the process!
Enter the contest if you are between the ages of 14 and 18, reside in BC, and want to create ART that ACTivates System Change, and draw attention to social and environmental injustices in our midst.
