art + justice is a platform for adults to explore the intersection of tactile art-making, thoughtful reflection, and personal enrichment. Through artist-led guided projects audiences unlock their creative potential within themselves, while also enjoying the opportunity to exchange ideas with community towards social justice. art + justice is a hands-on maker space that stimulates creative agency, while providing the mental and emotional space to work through complicated issues around race, gender, identity, and social cohesion.

Through art + justice the museum provides a rare creative outlet where audiences can interact with professional artists, experience expert techniques in a variety of art practices, and explore motivations for creating art. Art projects are designed to accommodate all skill levels. Audiences can take home their creations.

This program amplifies an important pillar of the National Museum of African American History and Culture’s mission to explore and share how American values such as resilience, optimism, and agency are reflected in the African American community’s past, present, and future.
art + justice embraces the therapeutic power of creativity to improve well-being, increase positive emotions and endorphins, and invigorate restorative energy towards personal and social peace and wellness.

Arist + Art Project:
Award-winning Washington, DC based spoken word artist 2Deep leads a beginner's level art lesson developing spoken word, poetry, and performative art around social justice issues and activism. This program will be held in the Museum's Target Learning Center classrooms on the 2nd floor.
