Arts Liberation & Leadership Institute (ALLI)

The Arts Liberation and Leadership Institute (ALLI) is a two-week intensive summer program where 28 youth are trained in artistry, social justice and organizing. Due to COVID-19 we have post-poned ALLI until the fall of 2020 and will run the institute as an after-school program. Youth leaders develop as cultural workers in chosen arts pathways. This cohort of youth hones their arts and organizing skills, while deepening their understandings of race and social justice issues. They collaborate, build community and create art that challenges oppression and envisions a more just world.

Applications will open in late summer 2020


Youth aged 14-19 who are interested in creating change through their artistry and leadership.
