First created in 2021, Curtain Up has made it our mission to become a body that exists for social justice within arts education. We are a community of arts students and alumni who are committed to improving the quality of arts education for marginalized students while working through an intersectional and decolonial lens.
As we’ve seen through the personal accounts of over 100 individuals, our arts institutions have caused immeasurable harm to their students. In this moment, we feel it necessary not only to call out, acknowledge, and condemn this harm; but also to make community efforts towards healing one another. This Art Is Mine: A Curtain Up Showcase has been created as a celebration of the reclaiming of our artistic expression. A reclaiming of our joy, our healing, and our community.
