SOCIAL JUSTICE THRU THE ARTS
Tuesday, May 31 – Sunday, June 5, 2022

This summer institute will teach basic social justice concepts through arts-based practices. Participants will integrate all they have learned by working with a featured artist 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.

Experience will include:

  • Experience working with CSU faculty and students through art-based practices.
