BSU@BSU BUILD.SERVE.UNITE: A Symposium on Social Engagement through the Arts
5:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Inspired by the work of social activists, critical theorists, creative and cultural producers, and performance and visual arts practitioners who develop strategies for social reconstruction this symposium seeks to explore relevant strategies and inspire action for social change. Current practices suggest that all forms of art can support the development of oppositional knowledge by inciting imaginative re-envisioning of the past, present and future. The creative work of doing and making in communities can turn art practice into public praxis, suggesting transformative ways of being together in the world.
Conference registration in begins Friday, September 13 at 5 pm which includes free performance of Convergence Theatre's A New Nation, then Saturday, September 14 registration begins at 8 am, come and enjoy keynotes by Theatre Alliance's Artistic Director Raymond Caldwell and artist Sheldon Scott of Project Unlearn, along with multidisciplinary workshops and panel discussions from some of my favorite creative resistance educators, artists and designers!
