“We Are Puentes (Somos Bridges)” is an exhibition on Language Justice by the Youth Crew and Empowerment Coordinators of the Kingston YMCA Farm Project. It is a collaboration with the Kingston YMCA Farm Project on “We Are Puentes (Somos Bridges),” an exhibition on Language Justice by the Youth Crew and Empowerment Coordinators of the Kingston YMCA Farm Project. The exhibition will be held at the Arts Society of Kingston (ASK) and launch on April 3 to the public. The exhibit “We Are Puentes (Somos Bridges)” is an extension of a six-part Language Justice youth series led by Adriana Perrichi and Li Sierra of the Farm Hub’s Language Justice program. In this series, the youth crew created projects based on what language justice means to them. Through art, video, and multimedia they examined how language impacts our daily lives, how the power of language can liberate or oppress, and what our role is in creating change toward language justice in our community. From paintings to social media posts, the art pieces showcased in “We Are Puentes” reflect what the youth crew learned and how they express and share their knowledge to help raise greater awareness on Language Justice.
