Upcoming Event: "Changing the Narrative" Art Exhibition


The Arts against Violence: Changing the Narrative of Brownsville community-wide summer tour is coming to an end. With one last stop scheduled to take place at the Van Dyke Community Center on Friday, August 30, 2013 at 8pm, the Brownsville Anti-Violence Project (BAVP) and its’ advisory boards have been planning a grand summer finale.
While on tour, the BAVP visited 4 Brownsville schools (Mott Hall Bridge Academy, Frederick Douglas High School, Teacher’s Preparatory Charter School and Roads Charter High School), 1 church (First Baptist Church of Brownsville), and National Night Out. Throughout the tour, young people talked about the effects of violence on the community and ways young people can make a difference. Young people also worked on original individual drawings, poetry, photography, essays and painted group inspired canvases to bring their visions and experiences to life!
It’s not over! If you missed the BAVP on tour, you still have a chance to make the finale! Come see what Brownsville youth have to say about growing up in Brownsville and what a better Brownsville looks like to them! The BAVP will be showcasing all of the art made on tour at:
