Community Arts Internship Program

Community Arts Internship Program is a neighborhood collaborative program beginning in Fall 2020 between Southern Exposure’s Artists in Education (AIE) program and Mission Girls’ Young Queens on the Rise program. Through distance learning, the Young Queens worked with Southern Exposure teaching artists to generate projects that activated, empowered, and raised awareness around issues important to their daily lives and their community. This partnership supported youth in finding their voices through art and their ability to share their vision with the community. This program provided an opportunity for young women to develop their leadership skills and to express their values and points of view through art as a vital way to help young women to have the confidence and security needed to reach life goals.

The projects revolved around the theme A PLACE OF YOUR OWN. This theme was expressed through many means including: journaling, love letters to a younger self, family collages, affirmations written on T shirts, beliefs that hold us back painted onto stones, and totems/symbols of power made of common materials like toilet paper.
