Artivism is a student-run organization based in New Jersey. We were founded in June of 2020.
In our current political climate, the number of students wanting to become involved in politics is increasing at a steady rate. Unfortunately, there exists a limited amount of opportunities for those students to participate in a way that goes beyond performative activism. Artivism hopes to give a platform to those students. We want to create opportunities for students to become actors rather than bystanders in solving the problems they see in their communities.
Our team consists of 40+ students from five different high schools in New Jersey and Connecticut, and we are still expanding!
