CURATORIAL INFORMATIONSTATEMENT   
The Youth and Public Media Project is a mentorship program that consists of a class taught by Julio Morales and which brings together students from the San Francisco Art Institute, the California College of the Arts, youth from Bay Area high schools and Youth Speaks, and Galería de la Raza’s artists-in-residence.

College students are trained in arts education, mentorship and community-based public art/social justice practices. The students also develop and teach multi-media workshops to youth participants. The class explores the potential "uses" of artwork in a social context and the role of the artist as a citizen in public life. College students are trained in arts education, mentorship and community-based public art/social justice practices. The students also develop and teach multi-media workshops to youth of color (video and sound editing and computer graphics). This youth component of the program is in collaboration with Youth Speaks.

The exhibition, Youth Rock Laboratory 2, is the result of this collaborative project led by Galería de La Raza in partnership with Youth Speaks, The San Francisco Art Institute, the Center for Art and Public Life at California College of the Arts, Arts Far West High School, and artists-in-residence, David Goldberg and Sergio De La Torre (2003-2004), and Euan Macdonald and Jenifer Wofford (2005).

The Youth and Public Media Project is funded by the Rockefeller Foundation/PACT Program.
