Envisioning a Safer Future: An Art Making Workshop with Compton G.IRLS Club

Compton G.IRLS Club was founded in 2017 as an after-school club based in Compton High School’s Library. Their mission is to provide girls and gender nonconforming youth from underserved communities access to resources, knowledge, and skills not readily accessible to them and which will aid them in their journeys to becoming confident, assertive, and independent.

Taking inspiration from Judith F. Baca’s World Wall: A Vision of the Future Without Fear, members of the G.IRLS club, with support from an LA-based working artist, lead a workshop focused on imagining a safer, more equitable world.

Judith F. Baca conceived of World Wall: A Vision of the Future Without Fear as “an arena for dialogue” for the greatest challenges we face and the solutions we imagine when we think and act collectively. Judith F. Baca: World Wall Public Programming looks to embody these ideals of activism and imagination. The series of free programs, which takes place within the space of the exhibition itself, highlights the intersection of environmental and social justice across many disciplines and draws attention to activists, writers, organizers, and artists working to instigate real change within the city.
