Let's learn more about Artivism- the combination of art and activism! We define artivism as using your art to bring about social change. Artivism is said to have taken root during a 1997 gathering between Chicano artists from East Los Angeles and the Zapatistas in Chiapas, Mexico. The words "Artivist" and "Artivism" were popularized through a variety of events, actions and artworks via East Los Angeles artists and musicians.*
For Educators and Families

As educators it is important to teach students that they can use their voices to speak up about issues that are important to them and learn ways to take action.
