Art, Thought and Community: Voices of Change 2020Posted by Krissy Ponden
This is the third year that Unquowa students have explored issues that matter to them, examined areas of injustice, delved into topics usually reserved for contemplation and debate by adults, and created works of art to reflect it.
The depth of thought, the care and diligence of the research, and the resulting concepts that ask you to consider your views on a topic without telling you what to think are indicative of the true and lasting learning that these students gained from participating in this project. These are the issues that matter to them, this is what is on their minds, and this is what they seek to change about their world. To say that young people do not have the ability to enact change is myopic, to assume they can not have opinions on controversial issues is naive; they see problems and they seek solutions, sometimes without the preconceptions of the adult world. The vision of our youth offers a fresh and real perspective.
