What is the Creative Activism Project?The Creative Activism Project was based on an in-person workshop and exhibit "Surviving Through Art." The workshop's purpose was to teach students about the events of the Holocaust and encourage them to create art inspired by the victims of the WWII Concentration Camp, Terezin. (For more information on Terezin scroll down.)Due to the health risks of Covid-19, we are unable to offer field trips to visit the exhibit and participate in the workshop. Because of this, we have reformatted the project as Creative Activism Now, an at-home Initiative.What kind of art do we want to see?We welcome students and creative individuals to submit an artifact of any medium inspired by injustice and historical oppression of any age, race, sexual orientation, or religion to Czech Center Museum Houston.Art can be submitted from August 12th to December 31st. Submissions will be displayed on the Czech Center Museum Houston website and in the museum itself. The most inspiring pieces submitted to the museum have a chance to win prizes. Students have a chance to win a laptop while adults can win gift baskets. For more information, please visit our website at https://www.czechcenter.org/creative-activism-home.What is Terezin?Terezin, known as the "Kingdom of Deceit," was a concentration camp near Prague used by Nazi Germany to fool the outside world into thinking concentration camps were humane. Art and education were a form of escape for those imprisoned in Terezin, like Petr Ginz's "Moon Landscape," which survived until today.
