Imagine a neighborhood art studio that offers programs for youth and adults alike; a creative place to gather and explore ideas. Art Futures Club is an effort towards this vision. Uniquely located in an underserved urban area just north of I-244, Creative Culture Lab is just one block away from Phoenix Rising Alternative School. Together with our partners at PRAS, we are working to develop the Art Futures Club, an opportunity for justice-involved students to engage in a six week inquiry into the intersection of art, activism, and digital content creation. The purpose of this project is to empower young people with a creative voice as a force for change in the world while gaining skills in digital literacy and the artistic process.
"I am thrilled to bring the Art Futures Club to life through this critical support from OVAC! Since the first moment I laid eyes on the space that would become Creative Culture Lab, I imagined it’s potential as an educational resource for individuals and families in the neighborhood. I believe in the power of art to build relationships and affect change in our communities.” - Lydia Moore
