One of our most active partnerships is with Pridelines Youth Services, a center focusing on the needs of LGBTQ youth aged 14-24. With these groups, we’ve been working on a series of projects including collages addressing gender & sexuality, as well as a 16mm film project on identity, led by WOTR artist Dinorah de Jesús Rodriguez.
The mentoring relationships created through our WOTR workshops not only build artistic skill, but also open essential dialogue on topics relevant to each group. In this instance, students expressed the concept of gender construction and identity through collage works.
Here is a pic of some of our Pridelines students with WOTR director, photographer Anya Wallace. Yes, we did have plenty of pastelitos on board. And yes, the love just flows & flows!
