Civic Engagement--Identity in a Jar
Making Art while engaging with the community:
The Agents of Change aim to make art while engaging with the community to promote a sense of belonging.
An example of an activity is "Identity in a Jar".
Through conversations the Agents of Change decided they wanted to engage the community in making an art installation that would be permanent and ongoing. They brainstormed how they could define their community through engaging them in art making and decided on a jar filled with objects that identified each community member. They began with creating a jar themselves and invited the school community and surrounding community to participate.
