“We are the next generation of voices. We are the future, we are change, we are hope, we are power and intelligence. We came into this program as strangers, and we will leave it not only as friends, but accomplished artists.” – Student participants in the 2018 Alliance Social Justice Thru the Arts experience
The Social Justice Thru the Arts (SJTA) Summer Institute 2018 brought students from Alliance high schools to campus for a week to learn about issues of gender equity, belonging, access, and justice through hands-on learning with CSU faculty, CSU student mentors, and renowned mural artist Rose Jaffe.
The Mural Holding Space found a new home in the Visual Arts Building on CSU Campus as part of the Engaged Art Walk Initiative, an arts-based community-building project, and an outdoor exhibition space that features rotating installations that integrate art, society, and education. Located on the north side of CSU’s Visual Art building, the Arts Walk is a visible space for activating CSU’s Principles of Community, as well as the Art Department’s educational and outreach missions.
