In this partnership program interns will be hired through ArtWorks to create a youth leadership team at the host site, Express Yourself Milwaukee. The theme of the 2015-16 EXYOMKE program is ILLUMINATE. The ArtWORKS/EXYOMKE Internship will be illuminating attributes and qualities of being a leader, leaders in our community and images that express and share our leadership in the world. Interns will also learn to be facilitators, role models and mentors to youth in other Express Yourself Milwaukee studio programming and in monthly Good EATS events at Express Yourself Milwaukee. Interns will be part of an artistic cohort of high school aged youth where they will research, engage and create individual and group artistic expressions of their learning, practice and understanding of responsive leadership. Exhibition of art created in the internship will take place at the December Good EATS, ArtWorks Annual Meeting, and in the EXYOMKE May 2016 annual performance.
