NYCI Artivism Summer School
Using Visual Arts And Spoken Word To Make Your Voice Heard On The SDGs!
Are you interested in exploring art as a way to create social change and to amplify young people’s voices? Do you see youth work and youth arts as a practice of empowerment? Join our NYCI Artivism Summer School 2023 to develop the skills to effectively challenge and disrupt inequality, and develop your SDG* action toolkit, through artivism!
This 3-day residential summer school will support you to develop skills in visual arts and spoken word, while delving into the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We will show you how artivism can provoke curiosity and engage critical thinking skills, using a pathway that takes you from the personal to the local, the national, and the global. This event will support participants to explore art as a means for social change and facilitate engagement in a form of creative expression that can inspire awareness, action and changemaking behaviour.

What to expect?
The immersive summer school experience provides space for participants to benefit from a supportive environment where they can explore their own creativity and artivism, reflect on global youth work as a critical youth work practice, and share experiences with peers. Expect lots of practical, creative activities; visual arts and spoken word workshops led by artists; group experiences and discussions!
- Participants will experience content and access resources that can be shaped into a summer artivism project exploring the SDGs with young people in their own projects.
- Participants will be offered opportunities to build on their Summer School experiences by engaging with One World Week 2023 November 18th – 25th
Join NYCI’s Youth Arts Programme and Global Youth Work Programme (Youth 2030) and a multi-disciplinary team of artists and artivists for an exciting summer school to enhance your work with young people! Unlock the SDG artivist in you!
