Online Workshop: Arts and Social Change

This workshop explores the intersection of arts, culture, and social change in neighborhoods, issue campaigns, social movements, and cultural policy, including:

  • Case studies of creative change addressing neighborhood self-determination, environmental justice, civic participation, labor organizing, migration, and more;
  • Creative methodologies such as cultural organizing and effective practices for collaboration and participation;
  • Examples of how cultural shifts and narratives shape policy and politics;
  • A discussion of what cultural policy might look like in the context of a progressive agenda; and,
  • Opportunities to problem solve around current work

The class will draw on the instructorsÂ’ knowledge and experience and invite participants to share their experiences and work.  

This workshop is designed to fill the gap between a typical short webinar and a longer online course. Each workshop is led by an international expert, combines lectures and small group discussion, and meets online for two (2) hours, once a week for three weeks. There is also an online discussion board for sharing information and group discussion during the three weeks.  There is no grading.
