San Bernardino is still healing from the 2015 Dec. 2 terror attack and the 2017 North Park Elementary School shooting. Domestic abuse and police brutality are also unfortunately still prevalent. The Voices Against Violence workshop series focused on the impact of violence through reflection, conversation, and self-empowerment, highlighting the personal experience of individuals affected by violence. Read poems and view art by workshop participants. Open mic and interactive exhibit!

Calling all Artists and Performers! 

 

 

We need art donations and live performances to support DREAMers of Cal State San Bernardino

The Art of Dreaming, an exhibition showcasing art pieces made with recycled materials, created by CSUSB DREAMers and allies, will take place at The Garcia Center for the Arts in San Bernardino, CA. Topics of the show are centered around the experiences of being an undocumented student or ally.

Opening reception May 22, 2017 with the show running through early June 3rd, with a gala reception and silent auction.

Local artists, performers, and community members are invited to participate and attend.
The money raised at the auction will be disbursed into an emergency scholarship fund for CSUSB’s undocumented students in dire need of financial assistance.

This is a call for artists to donate additional art pieces to join the collection and auction, and a call for performers to participate during the final closing ceremony and gala event. We encourage all artists to come as a community and support this effort. This opportunity is an expression of unity, art, and networking.


All art contributions will be carefully considered to be presented in the silent auction. Art performances can be musical, spoken word, live art creation, poetry readings, etc.
