VOICES wants kids affected by 9/11 or similar kinds of events to have a place of their own to share what's on their mind, get information, and show off their creativity. Visit the Comfort Corner, In the Know, Building Bridges, and Cool Stuff sections to find out what other kids are doing and thinking and link up to lots of resources.
Enriching Summer Fun with CITYarts
CITYarts empowers children and youth by bringing them together with professional artists to create public art that addresses civic and social issues, impacts their lives, and transforms their communities. They are looking especially for 9/11 kids to help with an exciting new project at Baruch Park in the Lower East Side.
The kids take a neglected wall in a public space and turn it into a beautiful gift of love and talent to the community. The kids plan the mural and paint it from primer to finishing touches supervised by professional artists and reformed graffiti artists. The wall in Baruch Park is shown at left above and a completed mural wall from the Bronx Claremont Pool project last year. Contact Christine Lu at 212.966.0377 or firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. See www.cityarts.org for more information.
