This summer, the Outreach & Media Youth team at Maverick Landing Community Services, has been planning a creative civic engagement project called The Eastie Evolution Exhibit.
The exhibit will take place on the Greenway, with different stations along the way that represent issues in the community such as: gentrification, environmental & climate justice, and food justice. It will include educational materials, learning-engagement activities for adults and kids, music, and live art.
This entire project has been conceptualized, planned and coordinated by young people in our community, with a mission to connect with our neighbors to spark conversations, educate people, become educated, get feedback, and enjoy eachothers company in a safe way.
With the local art community being very close to our hearts, we also want to be able to pay the artists involved in expressing our mutual community reflections in this form. With a zero-dollar budget for this project - we need to raise money for them!! This is what we made this small fund for, and we highly appreciate any contributions made! The money will be split evenly with all visual artists involved.
Follow us on social media to stay tuned on our progress :)
