From 2006 to 2016, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) granted citizenship to over 6.6 million immigrants. What do you need to become a citizen? How do you apply for citizenship? What does it mean to be a citizen of the United States?
CUP and Teaching Artist Meredith Degyansky worked with a group of public high school students from KAPPA International High School in the Bronx to dig a little deeper into citizenship. The students got out of the classroom and into the middle of the immigration debate, to survey their school community and interview key officials on immigration polices. With information gathered from the interviews, they created a booklet that uses art and design to teach others more about citizenship.
Join us for the debut of their project at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, where students will present their booklet and discuss their creative process.
