Join Artistic Noise staff, board, and youth artists to celebrate the opening of Ubuntu, a group show highlighting artwork by many youth from the Boston area.

Ubuntu is a South African term that roughly translated means "A person is a person through other persons." It is a worldview of human identity and a philosophy of life that offers insight into our relationship with others, embraced interconnectedness, kindness and human dignity - and implies choices that help to increase peace. Ubuntu Arts is an initiative of Violence Transformed's partner Wheelock College and its Juvenile Justice and Youth Advocacy Program showcasing artwork from teens in and around the Boston area that relate to the spirit of Ubuntu.
