Every second and fourth Sunday starting in March 2021, Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) youth from throughout Upstate South Carolina will participate in arts-based activities led by local artists of color and build community through youth-led small group discussions supported by mentors of color. This pilot initiative will use a variety of art forms in a small group setting to assist students in overcoming racial trauma, finding their voice, and increasing their understanding of their capacity to enact social change.

Registration for students is now open! The application deadline is February 28, 2021 for Momentum students and March 8 for all other applicants. Sign up here
