Youth Arts: UNLOCKED brings artists and arts workshops to justice-involved youth in Flint and Genesee County.
Our goal is to introduce artistic concepts and techniques as a means of connecting, expressing, learning, and discovery.
We offer workshops in the visual arts, spoken word poetry, theatre, dance and yoga. A separate gender-based program HerStory: UNLOCKED addresses the unmet needs of incarcerated girls.
Our workshops take place inside the Genesee County Juvenile Justice Center (GCJJC) and at the Learning Co-op in Flint, Michigan.
Each year we bring the artwork created in our workshops to the public through our exhibits and in books and videos available on our website.
Our latest online exhibit:
Creating Together, Apart
A virtual exhibition of the creative works of girls detained at GCJJC prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic.
