The Artivism Project (TAP), formerly known as The Institute for Social Justice in the Arts, is a collective of faculty and staff originating from TCNJ School of Arts and Communication that aims to:
- Raise awareness about social justice issues through creative practice, pedagogy, and curriculum
- Engage our community in dialogue about social justice issues through aesthetic experience
- Cultivate partnerships that advocate for human rights and environmental justice through the arts
- Use the arts to help amplify marginalized, invisible, and silenced voices in our communities

The Artivism Project’s (TAP) interdisciplinary collaborations include lectures, art exhibitions, music performances, curricular materials, and other creative experiences that focus on a particular work of art (e.g. a poem, image, or piece of music) that addresses a social justice issue.
