May 6 – First Friday Opening Reception
The Indiana Undocumented Youth Alliance (IUYA) is proud to announce our first Undocu Challenges Art Show. IUYA is a non profit that aims to empower immigrants that want to achieve higher education. IUYA aims to support five undocumented students by providing scholarships to assist with tuition costs. The funds raised through the art show will go towards the scholarship fund. IUYA is seeking Hoosier artists, undocumented or documented, that have experienced undocuchallenges to donate art work (existing or proposed) for the Undocu Challenges Art Show which will be on display at the Center for Interfaith Cooperation. Artists will be able to share their thoughts and experiences about the challenges as an undocuhoosier or hoosier with a mixed status family or community. Recently, there has been much negativity directed towards the undocumented community and we feel it is very important to address these issues. Through art, artists will be able to portray the harsh reality of undocuchallenges while highlighting the community’s support.
