Artivism of Environmental Healing 

Summer Art Camp

MOCHA will host two weeks of The Artivism of Environmental Healing camps for 9-14 year-old middle schoolers. Young artivists will be introduced to the power of ancestral and indigenous land in Oakland and explore foundational pathways that yield teamwork, social liberation, self-reflection, environmental justice, and meditation through the creative arts.
