KidsRise Art Showcase: April 1st, 2023
Youth belong in conversations about liberation, and for KidsRise, artists submit content responding to prompts around what liberation looks like in youth spaces. For our second annual KidsRise event, our prompt is:
Where are you from, and where are you going?
Artists PreK-12 may submit visual art, original music, dance, poetry -- you name it! -- in response to our prompt. You can respond to one part of the prompt, or to all of it! Our submission form will be open until January 31st, 2023.
Artists whose work is chosen for our April Showcase will receive a $100 gift card and will be invited to our showcase as one of our featured artists. Share your art with us below!
KidsRise Submission Forms: English Spanish Amharic Dutch

Meet Some Of Last Year's KidsRise Artists!
"I use my art to express the challenges I lived through and overcame to carve out a brighter future. I also draw upon my culture to help me feel connected to my ancestors and to give me strength. I possess a playful side and enjoy creating unusual pieces with a sense of whimsy."
"I am a family person I love playing games with people. I am an 11 year old light skin African American."
"I'm currently an Youth Action Member of NextUp Oregon, an intern for OLCV and also the Youth City Councilor for Tigard Oregon."
"I am passionate about STEM, and creative writing. I love writing poetry, and letting my mind run free as I question why, and wonder how. I hope that one day my words will be sharp enough to spark the world into existence. When I'm not in school or writing poetry, I enjoy running, coding, and playing chess."
