Art and Social Justice: An Introduction

School of Consciousness and Transformation MFA 7281 1.00

Open to the Institute as whole, this course provides an introductory framework for understanding the principles and practices of collaboration. We will examine how values and power relationships are manifest within conversational, collaborative, and interventionist models, a fundamental question when we focus our work on issues of justice and equity in any medium. We will also explore listening as an invested person in the room—engaged listening for possibility, raw material, or imagery for your creative practice. A prerequisite for an Arts and Social Justice emphasis, this course offers a broad historical survey of the way arts and social justice have intersected within activist and public art, and prepares students for entering community in any field where such engagement is involved.
