Art in all of its forms – music, visual arts, dance, and more – is a powerful avenue of self-expression. Art can educate people about devastating human rights issues. And art can bring people together to inspire action and change. Young people have been using art to bring awareness to broader social justice issues, especially in this time of uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Responding to this unprecedented moment, the Commission invited young people ages 13-18 to submit artworks that explore social issues in their communities. This is what they had to say.
