TAG > Artistic Intervention

Thursday, Dec 20, 2018 - 5:30 PM-7:30 PM

MCASD’s Teen Advisory Group (TAG) will host a participatory event during the Museum’s monthly Downtown at Sundown program. TAG Share Bag Activity invites people to think about the act of donating, and the ideas of sharing and caring: how does one share their care? The holiday season naturally brings out one’s desire to give to those less fortunate. However, when those desires and actions become second nature, it is easy to forget the true reason behind this important action.

MCASD’s Teen Advisory Group invites San Diegans to share their things, and their thoughts. Through this effort, one can give consciously, take time to think about their community, address difficult topics in conversation, and together create care bags for youth that are currently going through homelessness.

Teens will work with the public to create “share-bags” and join in conversation about issues facing San Diego’s homeless youth during Downtown at Sundown from 5 to 8 PM on Thursday, December 20. The SDSU Downtown Gallery will collaborate with MCASD for this project, serving as a station for collecting goods and creating share bags. 

Please consider donating one or more of the items on this list. Donations will be accepted at MCASD,1001 Kettner Blvd., or at the SDSU Downtown Gallery at 725 W. Broadway, any time from 11 AM to 5 PM on Thursday through Sunday.
All items will be donated to the SDSU Student Health Center and the Monarch School.
