KidsRise Art Showcase: April 2nd, 2022 on Zoom
We are excited to launch our First Annual KidsRise Art Showcase this year! Youth belong in conversations about liberation, and for KidsRise, artists have submitted content responding to the prompt: What does liberation look like for you? Take a look at our Facebook event for more information. We look forward to being in community with you!
Meet Some Of Our 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 questions 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."
