Make Them Hear You -

SCPA Family's video invitation to make art and create justice

Mission of the project

Justice Art SCPA is an online gallery space to share in
art-making and dialogue about our changing society.

Justice Art SCPA is a platform for current art-making about our changing society. SCPA Family is invited to share creativity meant to inspire reflection, discussion, and action.

As SCPA Students, Faculty, and Alumni, we are in a unique position, having been changed forever by our experiences creating art with people from different races and backgrounds at Cincinnati’s School for the Creative and Performing Arts. The legacy of the Martin Luther King assemblies is forever imprinted on our souls.

Please make art, sing, dance, play an instrument, write a poem, act...

Tell your story. Share your voice.

Upload your creativity on video for this Justice Art SCPA page. Your work will be posted unedited* and promoted on our social media accounts. (*We ask all contributors to comply with YouTube's standards and guidelines.)
