The Wrap Up: Art and Activism Marketplace 2019

Art has the power to change the world. That’s why Next Up presented our first ever Art + Activism Marketplace on November 23, 2019 at the Village Ballroom.

The event highlighted voices from people of color, women, youth, and artists behind bars. As author Jeff Chang said,”Politics is where some of the people are some of the time. Culture is where most of the people are most of the time.” We aim to build networks with artists, media makers, and cultural institutions because art engages our communities and is a way to co-create our future. Check out some of the photos that were taken by Isabela Villarreal!
