Body
ExpresARTE is a grassroots collective of youth of color activists in the large Madison area, a movement from youth to youth that uses creative art expression and storytelling as a tool for social change and social justice. Through art, our group promotes leadership skills, knowledge, and voice to address issues affecting the Latino community. Our overall goal is to use art and storytelling to understand the lived experiences and issues (like immigration, gangs, and the school-to-prison pipeline) of Latinos and how we are affected by multiple systems; as well as create awareness of the issues in the broader community.
