The You Will Rise Project is partnering with Palenke Arts for a hands-on workshop for middle school students who are (or were) victims of bullying. Artists from the community will work with students, inspiring them to create raw, uncensored works about their experiences with bullying. The resulting collection, including collaborative installation pieces and individual creations, will be presented in a multi-media pop up exhibition at Palenke Arts that is open to the public.

Workshop week 1: Sunday, April 8, 12pm - 3pm
Workshop week 2: Sunday, April 15, 12pm - 3pm

The You Will Rise Project provides a multimedia showcase for people of all ages who have been bullied to share their stories through the arts. Submissions can include visual art (paintings, drawings, sculptures, videos, etc.) as well as poetry, song lyrics, short stories, or other creative expressions that best capture their personal experiences. By giving visitors the opportunity to view these creative works, we hope to educate, instill pride, generate positive feedback, and provide online resources - all for the purposes of supporting, inspiring creative productivity, fostering respect for cultural and sexual diversity, and improving the quality of life for those who have been or are currently being bullied.
