Informed by social reconstruction, critical pedagogy, and critical multiculturalism, this research examines the ways in which collaborative art production can assist a youth activist organization in furthering its goals for individual and collective empowerment. Enacting the roles of the community artist/educator as facilitator and gatherer, two arts-based projects were developed for and with Filipino youth activists in Montreal as a way to extend their community work into art activism. Embracing participatory action research as the primary methodology, this research demonstrates that collaborative art production, tied to the concerns and values of an organization, allows its members to identify and visually represent community problems, connect personal experiences to larger group reality, and envision alternatives for their community. I reflect on my role as a cultural worker in this process and finally, I discuss implications of this research for community art education and community organizing.
