The Center for Social Justice & Civil Liberties in the Riverside Community College District was awarded a generous Creative Corps Inland SoCal Grant to produce The ​Body of Free​dom. 

The Body of Freedom is an expansive collaborative project with the Arts Magnet Program at Ramona High School, Division 9 Gallery, and the Inlandia Institute. The project supports local artists to create inclusive, community-based art workshops rooted in social justice and equity.  Fourteen 4-week multidisciplinary workshops ranging from dance, yoga, and visual art to creative writing, fashion, and choir are FREE and open to the public. Community-based workshops run between September 5 - November 14, 2023.

The art created in the Fall workshops will culminate into a community mural at Ramona High School; and a collaborative exhibition titles, The Body of Freedom, which will run between February 1 - March 16, 2024, at The Center for Social Justice & Civil Liberties.​​

This activity is funded in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency.
