claiming the visual narrative: the role of arts and aesthtics in abolishing the war on drugs
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11 @ 6PM
CLAIMING THE VISUAL NARRATIVE
Claiming the Visual Narrative in Newark, NJ is a community arts project created by The Confined Arts (TCA) with the goal of developing representative imagery in Newark, a community that continues to be vulnerable to racially unjust narratives of the war on drugs.
The Confined Arts has partnered with Yendor Productions, a Newark based organization that fosters hope and healing through access to the arts and cross-cultural programming, to host a community meeting where grass-roots Organizations, Artists, Activist, and other community stakeholders can discuss the role that public art and aesthetics can play in ending to the war on drugs and systemic racism in Newark.
The Claiming the Visual Narrative Project will be responding to the Salvation and Social Justice Coalition call to action, as we explore the role that public arts and aesthetics can play in abolishing the war on drugs in New Jersey, and specifically the Newark’s West Ward.
The Confined Arts will also be discussing media production opportunities that are available Spring 2021 for ARTISTS IN NEWARK through our partnership with the Newark Community Solution Center
