As the 2020 election season heats up and political tensions rise, many are struggling with increased levels of anger, fear, uncertainty, and stress. This positive and inspiring message reminds us that love is greater than fear and challenges us to stay positive during this distressing time.
This summer, Creative Art Works developed a Remote Digital Public Art Youth Employment program which provided jobs to over 50 teens and young adults from all over NYC. Youth employees learned digital job skills and participated in the conversation about social justice issues that have gained momentum in the past year.
This social justice poster was designed by Abigaile Jeudy. The central photo was taken by Jackie Hernandez. View all the work from this program on CAW’s web magazine.
Creative Art Works empowers young people in underserved NYC neighborhoods through the visual and multimedia arts. Their programs equip children, teens, and young adults with essential tools and skills; connect them with community, academic success, and career opportunities; and inspire them to reach for new possibilities. Thei programs build confidence, unlock a love of learning, and teach valuable technical and developmental skills. Students are never charged for participation in their programs.
