Art and Resistance Through Education

Vision: ARTE is an organization that uses art, design, and technology to empower young people to develop creative solutions and bring awareness to local and global human rights challenges, fostering leadership opportunities to train and organize other young people in their own communities.

Impact: From using murals as a collective way to take action, and create safer communities for LGBTQ people in the South Bronx, to working with men incarcerated at Rikers Island on creating a visual piece on women’s rights and gender equality, ARTE works to creatively address a wide range of issues stemming from inequity and injustice.
