Whether by direct action or through their work, artists and scholars have long been at the forefront of protest movements in the United States and around the world. In these fraught political times, the necessity of art that responds to injustice has never been more urgent.
On June 16, Sarah Lawrence College and the Mayapple Center for the Arts and Humanities will conduct a one-day workshop for artists and scholars to reflect on their own practice of activist art, and, more broadly, on the potential(s) for art as political resistance in America in 2018.
The workshop will consist of panel discussions and collaborative small group sessions with artists, scholars, and panelists, including Dar Williams, Mahogany L. Browne, Felix Endara, David Birkin, Nicolaus Mills, and Michelle Slater.
The Mayapple Center invites anyone (18 and older) who seeks to express their intellectual and artistic creativity in a setting that promotes cultural vitality.
The workshop fee is $25 and includes lunch. Registration required.
