Between 1991-2000, Suzanne Lacy worked with a broad coalition of activists, artists, youth and politicians under the acronym TEAM (Teens + Educators + Artists + Media Makers) to produce large-scale projects that included youth workshops, media intervention, and institutional programs and policies. Socially oriented public performances with youth in Oakland, California challenged negative media images. Funded in part by the Surdna Foundation, The Nathan Cummings Foundation, Oakland’s Kids First Initiative and many others, this was one of the most developed explorations of community, youth leadership, and public policy in visual arts practice.
