Groundswell brings together artists, youth, and community organizations to use art as a tool for social change.

Community

Working in a collaborative process, our students gained the knowledge and tools necessary to explore, design and interpret important and relevant messages to the school community. More about IS 62's story

Youth

Groundswell is a safe space for me as a teenager, it’s a place where you can express yourself with whatever it may be, it's your getaway. More about Kevin's story

Artists

For me, building imagination and sharing knowledge alongside a younger generation of artists is a great manifestation of the fruits of this shift. With this mural, we are also bringing intergenerational participation into a future that honors our past while actively creating a different path of existence.
