To inspire activism in the next generation of leaders, community mentors in a variety of fields will welcome teens on a drop-in basis to participate in unscripted conversations and workshops about changing communities. We invite youth to reclaim the word “responsibility” from its frequent use by adults to blame or shame youth for societal problems. Instead, young people will use art, critical thinking, and community organizing to reframe “responsibility” to mean “the ability to respond to a broken society.” Teens will share topics of interest and receive feedback from guest mentors, including Brent Blair, Associate Professor of Theatre Practice at the USC School of Dramatic Arts, artist and activist Patrisse Khan-Cullors, artist and professor at the USC Roski School of Fine Arts Suzanne Lacy, and others.

Teresa Flores will be our featured artist mentor. Flores is an artist who looks at movement and migration between spaces. She is particularly interested in how people move between geographic spaces, how the body is carried between these spaces, and the ways it can affect culture to build change over time. Her work ranges from drawing and painting to memes, videos, and cooking. She has taught at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena and California State University Fresno and holds an MFA in Public Practice from Otis College of Art and Design.

Every Tuesday | 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
