Be Part of the Archive

The Youth Activist Art Archive (YAAA) highlights youth-created art that addresses a variety of important social issues. We celebrate the act of critically seeing the world and having the creativity to envision and campaign for change. This archive is the recognition of young artists (26 years old and younger), who are at the forefront of social movements and showcase the passion, hope, and resiliency needed to create sustainable changes in our world.

quote by margaret mead " never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

The YAAA website showcases a database of youth-created activist art of varying social issues, contains resources for making and facilitating art activism art projects, and highlights academic research. This archive is made possible, in part, through the generous support of the University Research Committee and Digital Matters, both from the University of Utah.

We are currently opening up a call and would love to feature your art! All submissions will be reviewed by the YAAA team at the University of Utah. This is a curated archive and not all submissions will be selected for inclusion into the archive. You may submit as many images as you’d like and will be notified if your work is selected for the archive. Some images may be selected for publication in a book. 

Please go to the submission page for instructions on how to include work in the archive.
