Save Our Schools invites students, teachers, parents, guardians, and all supporters of public education to join a nation-wide art campaign to express the harmful effects of corporate education policies on our communities. Join The Campaign for Artful Resistance.
It’s time to join a grassroots movement to end these devastating policies and bring back the joy of meaningful learning to our schools.
An opportunity for people of all ages to create and share works of art that challenge the harmful impacts of these devastating policies.
There are four ways to participate (see full details in The Campaign For Artful Resistance Booklet). Do any or all of these!
- Create artwork to be submitted, performed, or presented at a local Campaign for Artful Resistance event or in the SOS National Gallery of Artful Resistance. (See the Campaign For Artful Resistance Booklet for directions and release form.)
- Organize a local event as part of The Campaign for Artful Resistance in your local or online community (See The Campaign Booklet)
- Attend one of the many Campaign for Artful Resistance. events occurring in September 2013
- Spread the news broadly about The Campaign for Artful Resistance.
We are calling all artists, students, teachers, parents, other folks interested in reclaiming our schools FOR LEARNING, not practicing bubble-completion or enriching corporations to join us. If you're interested in creating artwork or hosting an event of any size, Save Our Schools will assist by providing networking opportunities and a Webinar Planning Session for local site coordinators, presentations, flyers, and other support materials to inform and engage participants.
Begin now! Choose a medium that you enjoy, and create something that shows how you feel about what has taken the joy away from learning. And/or begin planning a local Campaign for Artful Resistance event that you can host in September 2013. We are aiming for September/October dates for public events and are still in the idea-gathering stage. SOS also has a "gallery" on-line where videos, music, poems, visual art, etc. can be posted any time.
Online, around the country, & in your community. Submit artistic creations to the SOS National Gallery of Artful Resistance and to your local Campaign for Artful Resistance site coordinator.
