Recently, Art Talks paired young Seattle artists (15-19) with professional adult artist mentors. Together they worked on a project that envisions their city in the year 2022.
The workshop covered a gamut of topics from violence to economics, education, ecology, and coming age in a digital world. Participants were asked to read about and explore these topics in group discussion. They looked at existing examples of art and culture that explore urban issues and then the artists were set free to create.
Tonight is the culmination. A live performance on Hollow Earth Radio (Wednesday August 8th, 8:00pm), as well as a open house display of all the visual work. Free and open to friends, family and the community.
