TO LEARN CULTURAL
Because we believe in revolutionary
education in both practice and purpose.
WHY WE EXIST
When we look into what our educational system has taught us on Black Culture, we noticed that what we were taught was rooted in misinformation and a white supremacist educational system. On our search for a community organization that provides art – based education from a Black cultural perspective, we found few.
Learning about art and Black culture doesn’t always mean taking college courses. It should be an interactive experience that allows you to participate and create as you learn.
ARTIVISM COMMUNITY ART IS AN
ART – BASED LEARNING COMPANY
THAT WAS BORN FROM A NEED FOR
CULTURALLY AUTHENTIC ART INSTRUCTION
IN AND AROUND THE COMMUNITY
THE ART BOX
The Art Box was made to revolutionize the way we learn, practice, and teach cultural art. As you are learning, The Art Box allows you to utilize your own intuition and voice to create what you want to see in the world and how you wish to be represented.
WHO WE SERVE
Our number one priority is equipping children with the power to dream. We want families to learn to be active participants in their future.
Those who practice art with the aim to teach. They bring art into their communities and want to join a community of artists.
These are the folx we partner with. Community leaders work through an organizing lens and bring cultural art into their communities.
Our Home Schoolers want to integrate cultural art based learning into their practice.
They provide monetary, social, academic, and other resources to ensure Artivism Community Art stays around for generations to come.
WONDERING WHO YOU ARE?
“Through Artivism I have learned a lot not only about Afrofuturism, but also our collective Black past because so much of that comes through the art that Black people make. So I’m just thankful my connection to Schetauna and my connection to Artivism has opened up things I wouldn’t have seen before. I just think it’s so beautiful for Black people to experience those types of things in terms of experiencing new wonderful, joyful things.”
