Event sponsored by The Simple Good: Non-profit organization empowering youth activism through art and the meaning of #thesimplegood. Proceeds will be donated toward TSG’s innovative Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Mindfulness-based Arts Residency Program, which helps youth to cope with trauma, build resilience, and practice empathy. By identifying, expressing, and sharing their (youth) meaning of “good” with art, students learn the power of positive expression and connection. – @thesimplegood
