INTEGRATED ARTS

Through collaborative Integrated Arts Projects/Proyecto de Arte Integrado (IAP), teaching artists partner with academic facilitators and students at El Puente Academy for Peace and Justice and its community partner, El Puente, to create interdisciplinary, theme-based arts projects that produce high quality, original artwork that promotes human rights and social action. These year-long projects have included investigations into themes of legacy, immigration, health & wellness, technology, the history and impact of the sugar industry, biodiversity, gentrification, the cost of war, the role of borders in our lives, and other topics. Members of Los Muralistas have been involved in the project design and the facilitation of the creation of the visual arts components of these projects since their inception in 1995.

El Carnaval del Santo Legado, 2013

This project was based on the idea of legacy in the lives of students. Work included the first interviews of community residents as part of the "Voces de Los Sures" (Voices of the Southside) project and a performance of student poetry, dance and music derived from their reflections on the theme of legacy.
