Wearing Your Heart on your Sleeve

Philadelphia, PA (2017)

Wearing Your Heart on Your Sleeve was a summer program in collaboration with the Mural Arts Program in Philadelphia. This project gave students an opportunity to clarify what their dreams for the future. In groups they created shared visions of a bright future and turned this into persuasive imagery to fight for their dreams. As a group they created textiles that reproduce en masse their message for justice using dye and repeat screen printing. Students created clothing from the textiles they produced to wear proudly their strong visions for a bright future, challenging them to speak their truth and live in their power to create the world they’ve dreamed.
