Rights and Wrongs: Liberty, Democracy, and the Struggle for Human Rights

“Rights and Wrongs” is a 3-part series that explores a range of perspectives, including the history of race in America and the Black Lives Matter movement, women’s suffrage and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, immigrant rights, public health vs. individual liberty, voter rights and voter access, freedom of speech and the arts, or other topics and approaches that connect to this theme.

“In this time of chaos and challenge to our democratic society, we are required as artists and art educators to examine the role of art as a practice of justice and liberation.  Our public strategies of community engagement and cultural transformation are part of the societal healing needed in this era of rupture and conflict."
– Amalia Mesa-Bains

Design as a Pathway to Justice

Social Design Module Designed + Facilitated By Denise Shanté Brown, November 9 and November 12, 12:30 pm (EST)

In this two-part guided module, Denise will offer an introduction to design justice exploring the questions: How can design be a tool for dreaming and building more just, liberating futures? How can we both practice and embody the justice we want to see?

Through this shared experience, we will critically meditate on the existing movements practicing design as a pathway to create the worlds we need, collaboratively define what design justice could look like during these precarious times, and identify ways we can integrate the values reflected in design justice into our lives, work, and presence.

Lifting up dialogue, embodied practices, and imagination, these sessions are created to facilitate integration between design and community building and to nurture new connections among people committed to design supporting communities facing injustice.
