The Potential of Ubuntu:
Youth Transforming Violence

Ubuntu Arts ExhibitApril 19 - 23, 2011

Opening Reception: Tuesday, April 19, 5-8 p.m.

This annual exhibit of "Ubuntu Arts" is an ongoing initiative of "Ubuntu in the Works" at Wheelock College. Through the process of creation and exhibition of individual and collaborative teen art, we aspire to be "part of the solution." The yearly exhibits are curated from youth artwork that is submitted in response to a call for art and from submissions by each of our collaborating youth programs through the Ubuntu Arts Youth Project. Each year we use the theme of the exhibit to ask students and youth to imagine alternatives to violence and to consider the concept of Ubuntu as they develop competencies and express their voices through a variety of artistic media.

The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public and the reception includes light refreshments and youth performances.

View more photos of artwork from the exhibit.
