Arts Every Day is very excited to present our 6th Annual 10X10 Exhibit titled Freedom Dreaming: Finding Joy.  Call for art submissions is now open!  Deadline for all work must be in no later than January 7, 2022.  Inspired by the works of Dr. Betina Love’s We Want to Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom and Robin D. G. Kelley’s Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination, this exhibit intends to spark creative discourse within classrooms and encourage both students and teachers to think about themes such as perseverance, struggles to find joy, making and finding connections and relationships, and deep listening and observation.  We hope this exhibit will help students share their own stories while envisioning what the future holds for them!
