Art 4 [CHANGE] explores the intersections of art, equity, and mental health. This Fall and Winter No Going Back LA will host community art events across Los Angeles County to support youth mental health through the vehicle of self-expression in a COVID-19 world.
These activities are to engage youth and community in dialogue and reflection on themes of racial equity, social justice, and mental health and well-being.
We are proud to support Self Help Graphics in Boyle Heights to host events that foster community building and collective healing that is much needed as we live through a global pandemic where many have lost their lives and sense of normalcy.
