Event description

Description

The Social Justice Art Festival is a collaboration between MSU colleges and units to provide a space for MSU students to utilize art as a tool to engage in topics related to social justice. Art is a useful tool that encompasses multiple mediums and has the ability to inspire and convey messages that we often grapple with or relate to in our everyday lives. The inspiration for this event is derived from contemporary art shows and local festivals that capture the sentiment of art, unity, and justice.

It is easy to feel alone when we are going through a crisis. “Conjuring What We Need” is a workshop that asks participants to remember their own strength by remembering all the communities they are a part of. Through a series of writing exercises, participants will call on ancestors, motivate themselves, and engage in deliberate self-care. This workshop will create a safe space for participants of all writing backgrounds to create their own healing, stimulate mental health, and explore positive cultural identity.

Connecting Communities, Creating Stories is a Community Composing Project sponsored by the Writing Center @ MSU. Everyone has a story to tell, and we're here to listen! Our goal is help our community find commonalities and a love of our differences through the telling and listening of story. Please visit our station to tell us your story.
