Drawing from the anthropological concept of 'cultural citizenship,' this workshop will review and critique a range of planning models drawing on national and international case studies. From inclusive museum practices to Indigenous arts programs and community development projects, students will be asked to consider their own practices and work experiences. Participants will be guided in ethnographic techniques and community design that support critical sustainment of natural and cultural resources. This class is designed for all levels of interest and practitioners, with an emphasis on diversity and inclusion policies and practices, and community-centered planning. By investigating the possibilities for future-building, we will also expand inter-cultural dialogue and visual communication through creative enterprises.
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.
