In this free ten-week course, young artists will combine visual arts and hip-hop poetics to process and heal from collective violence in order to imagine solutions and develop a lens around incarceration and abolition.  With the guidance teaching artists Tita Thomas and Bria Royal of For the People Artist Collective, young artists will rejuvenate the 51st Street facade at the #BreathingRoom Space with a mural that displays themes of self-governance, self-love, anti-capitalism, abundance, and unity between the Black & Latinx communities of Back of the Yards.
