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!
Our Summer Accomplishments
This summer, Artivism collaborated with the nonprofit LALDEF (Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund) to combat education inequality in the Trenton area. Here's a list of our primary accomplishments.
1. Raised $2500 for LALDEF's (Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund) Education Sector.
2. Offered two months of arts and academic summer workshops to students in the Trenton area through the "Talleres de Veranos" summer program.
3. Put together three virtual showcases (YT: Artivism Fundraiser) to help raise awareness about education inequality.
Let's Talk Politics
This fall, Artivism held a discussion forum featuring both students and teachers of the Peddie School. Topics discussed included the 2020 Election, healthcare, climate change, and more. Through discussion, we hope to shed more light on political and social issues like education inequality, so that we may approach better solutions soon.
