Programs run from October 2021 to May 2022

ABOUT THE RACIAL JUSTICE INSTITUTE VISUAL ARTS PROGRAM: The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC is excited to partner with Bergen Family Center’s successful “Racial Justice Institute” program, which raises awareness around the issues of racial justice in our community. BFC social workers lead discussions on issues with middle school and high school students. Students will create visual art pieces as a means of creative self-expression of these pertinent discussions. The program will culminate with a mid-year gallery sharing (virtual or in-person at BFC), as well as an end-of-year art installation event. Taught by bergenPAC teaching artist Derick Cross.

Recruitment Workshop:  Friday, December 3 from 11am to 1:30pm at Janis Dismus Middle School – The Zone.  Contact DeManuel Edmonson at for more details.  


The program will take place every Wednesday from 4pm to 6pm at Bergen Family Center from December 8 – May 18, with a culminating art gallery sharing event at the shadowboxes alongside the ShopRite in Englewood on Wednesday, May 18 at 5pm.
