Y-WE Lead Green: Express and Changemakers 2018-2019 Application

This Program will be led by Tracy Stewart and Mari Shibuya. The overarching theme will be Artivism. During the day participants will be divided into two Learning Communities.  

Express with is an exploration of creativity. You will be encouraged to view life as a creative activity and to use your own personal art as an avenue to impact the world around you. Participants will learn the basic tools of visual art and have the opportunity to create a mural.

Changemakers exposes participants to different kinds of activism highlighting what local folks and activists around the world are doing to make positive change. It will also challenge you to think about yourself as a change agent and determine what kind of action you would like to take in your own community.
