North Stars Leaders brings young adults together with artists, activists, and historians, providing opportunities to work collaboratively, discuss issues of justice, and think critically and creatively. North Stars Leaders will have the chance to engage in studio tours; panel discussions; field trips; dialogues about history, race, and justice; and make art inspired by this exchange.
North Stars Leaders is a collaboration between Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site and Art Sanctuary intended to support young people who are interested in careers in art, criminal justice, prison reform, law, or social activism. Participants will grow personally and professionally, have leadership experiences, and make important connections within Philadelphia that will help them in their future careers. We are looking for participants who are responsible, thoughtful, self-starters, and enjoy meeting and working with new people.
Free Septa tokens, supplies, and snacks provided. The week-long program will begin on August 13th 2017.
Open to: Philadelphia young adults, ages 13-18
