Supporting Healthy Black Youth
Supporting Healthy Black Youth is looking for participants ages 13-19, who have an affinity for art and those who would like to have a hands-on introduction to art.
Supporting Healthy Black Youth (SHBY) kicks off Monday, April 25th! Urban Triage is excited to partner with WoLF Studios MKE, to create a revolutionary space for Black youth. Our Supporting Healthy Black Youth workgroup offers trauma recovery, creative art and his-story through the lens of Blackness. If you are interested in joining the first cohort of SHBY, please sign up here: Supporting Healthy Black Youth Workgroup Application!
This is the first Urban Triage Supporting Health Black Families workgroup in the Milwaukee, WI area. Urban Triage’s Supporting Health Black Families Programming is designed to empower and inspire breakthroughs and transformation in Black people, Black families, and Black communities.
Supporting Healthy Black Youth is looking for participants ages 13-19, who have an affinity for art and those who would like to have a hands-on introduction to art. Our transformative workgroups provide youth with the tools, skills, and space to explore their character, their feelings, motives, and desires through creative arts such as hip hop, creative writing, photography, videography, trauma recovery, healing, and personal development.
Through art, the program will cultivate leaders by exploring how art is connected to the following areas of focus: Perspective, Self-Awareness and Trauma. We hope participants will leave feeling empowered, inspired, capable and strengthen their abilities to connect to specific cultural principles and nuances.
The WoLF Studios MKE mission began in 2019 on a studio dance floor, with countless notebooks and the desire to see a more diverse Arts Community. Today, we are creating platforms for the next generation of Artists to innovate and carry that dream forward.
We envision an Arts Community where Black Artists are equitably valued and compensated for their Artistic, Professional and Cultural contributions to the Arts. The growth and success of the Arts can only be achieved through a commitment to diverse racial, cultural and ethnic representation.
Each week each child will be eligible to receive a gift card stipend based on attendance and completion of assignments.
The results from our workgroups are unexplainable. We empower and inspire breakthroughs and leadership using our story, our history as catalysts for change. Sign up below.
