Essential Question This Mini-Course Will Explore: How have artists throughout time and place leveraged their collective artistry as a tool to make a change and provide critical perspectives on the world’s inequities?

This three-part mini-course for self-identified cultural workers will explore the innovation of merging art with activism. Arts activism can yield memorable experiences that can have a lasting impact on both audiences and students. Mini-course facilitators will hone in on interests specific to participants by tailoring the content of sessions to meet their immediate needs. Subjects explored in this interactive and practically-grounded mini-course will include a combination of the following topics:

  • Introduce learners to the principles of arts activism

  • Survey of how artists have engaged in various forms of arts activism throughout time on a local, national, and global scale.

  • Demonstrate how participants can use their own creative voice to advocate for change across artistic disciplines

  • Collaborate in groups to design a multi-disciplinary project with the potential to yield innovative practice in the field
