Creative Activism Project
Mission Statement: Uplifting, connecting and uniting different perspectives through visual and expressive art.
The Creative Activism Project starts with a challenge to our society: What do you want to change about the world in which you live? What sort of injustices do you see? How can you represent these problems and solutions creatively? Although this program started with students at Beaverton High School (Beaverton, OR) we are opening submissions to the greater community. This is not only a great way to feature your creativity, but also push you to explore new areas.
STEP 1: Call for action
Submissions can be visual art, songs, poetry, performances, etc. Each submission must include a club or non-profit that it would like to support. You may submit using the form below, and all approved submissions will be featured on the website below.
STEP 2: Vote
Vote for the best of poster/design for each cause . The best for each cause will be created into screen-printed posters and apparel. All submissions (including performance pieces) will be featured on the website and in social media.
STEP 3: Support the cause
After voting, you will be able to purchase apparel (t-shirts, hoodies, etc) and posters that features different art submissions. The proceeds from these sales will be donated to the club or cause that it supports.
For more information about the project, please contact student organizers Nabila Hersi and Gaby Lee.
The CAP team maintains the right to not feature any work that we do not find appropriate.
We recommend that each student group has a project leader that helps organize their submissions. Here is what we encourage these :
Present the project to your group and talk about the program details and propose a submission due date.
Encourage creatives, artists and members in your group that might be interested to submit.
Do weekly check-ins with your club or organization to keep track of your artist’s progress.
Have a final vote with your club on which pieces you would like to represent your cause.
Once posted to the Cada Casa website help spread the word using your club’s social media to encourage purchasing of your prints.
