Becoming Part One

In this unit, youth explore their own identity, societal expectations, and leadership through photography, wood construction, and performance work. The set of projects is broken up into three phases: exploration, art-making, and civic engagement. By the end of the unit, youth will be able to identify racism and speak to this through a performance using their own handmade soapbox.
