Social Justice “Thru” the Arts Virtual Summer Program
June 14 – June 17, 2021

This summer institute will teach basic social justice concepts through arts-based practices. Participants will integrate all they have learned by working with feature artist Eric Aoki to create an art piece from a social justice framework. Students collaborate alongside CSU faculty, students, and community educators through teambuilding, intercultural dialogue, and collaboration across differences, nurturing individual and collective voice, and fostering community dialogue by emphasizing skills that promote social justice advocacy. In the process they not only learn what a career in the arts through a social justice lens looks and feels like but also how the art fits into their lives and communities by addressing issues of equity, belonging, access, justice, and how the creative process is a part of all of our stories.

The experience will include:

  • Experience working with CSU faculty and students through art-based practices.
  • Expert advice on applying to college, admission requirements, financial aid, housing, and careers
  • Certificate of Completion
