"Say Their Names" is a participatory public art project centered on youth, cultivating their ideas and building their leadership in social justice issues and community organizing curriculum. This project aims to support young people in their understanding of racism, sexism, classism, and other -isms in virtual workshops and creative engagement that will result in a permanent art installation (Spring 2021). Lead artist Tran Vu, in partnership with Building Audacity youth, will co-create public art that honors Black lives and stories in Boston, while addressing anti-Black racism, oppression, and violence.
