Culture of Empowerment is a series designed around the idea that people are powerful when learning together. Each quarter’s topics will revolve around a single theme, with chances to dig deeper, learn how to activate community impact, and connect with each other. The theme for July to September is Youth and Migration. This theme is inspired by the current exhibit “Uncaged Art” up in the Branigan Cultural Center Courtyard. This exhibit features artwork created by youth kept in immigration detention at the U.S./Mexico border.
