Project Topic: Youth Engagement
Project Description: A series of community workshops in Cleveland and New York City in tandem with Praxis Fiber Workshop, a national call for submissions with a stressed focus upon textiles and gender and a targeted call for submissions from Cleveland LGBTQ artists, and an exhibition in the gallery of Praxis.
Community Engagement Strategy: We aim to engage LGBTQ youth through intersectional discussion and artmaking in regards to gender and sexuality. Violence against LGBTQ folks is an enormous problem as over 25 transgender folks of color were murdered in 2015. We aim to provide a safer space for LGBTQ youth.
