Partnership with I Am Why
I Am Why brings young women and gender expansive activists together with researchers and other partners to increase young activists’ individual and collective power. By celebrating their strengths and sharing their stories and visions for justice, young people lead the way to policies, practices and programs that work.
This was collaborative effort with Destination Innovation and Progeny, to uplift the stories and leadership of young women in Wichita. The featured artists are all young women who participated in a workshop series about empowerment through storytelling and visual representation. The pieces are mixed media paintings over photo portraits of the artists (photography by Yadira Palacios).
