We are accepting artwork submissions for the upcoming Campus Action Network Art Show:
Outspoken Art: Youth Against Abusive Policing
Thursday, June 12th 2014 at 5:00pm
CAN is a city-wide coalition of students and faculty that use campus and community organizing to promote police and criminal justice reform. CAN is hosting an arts event showcasing the talent of NYC youth who have been, or are being, effected by NYPD discrimination and abuse. Young artists will present their photography, drawings, paintings and videos, as well as give live performances (Spoken word, short skits and poetry.) The event will include the artwork of students high school through graduate school level – confronting issues of police discrimination and abuse – including artwork made by adults who work closely with youth on campuses and in the community.
The purpose of the Outspoken Arts event is to give young people a space to express themselves concerning discrimination and abuse from the NYPD and the criminal justice system. It is important to create a space for youth expression through the arts, and this Outspoken Art event aims to do just that.
If you are interested in contributing your artwork, live performance and/or video please see the submission process below.
