For Freedoms Town Hall: Art, Activism, and Social (In)Justice?
This fall, For Freedoms launched the 50 State Initiative, a national network of artists and institutions across the country who will stage art actions, town hall meetings, and special exhibitions to encourage broad participation and inspire conversation during the upcoming midterm election. The For Freedoms Town Hall at UMass will be focused on the social justice challenges our community faces. While the Pioneer Valley is typically seen as a very liberal place, for many people it can be quite isolating and oppressive. Titled “Art, Activism, and Social (In)Justice?” the town hall seeks to highlight these experiences and discuss the ways art can be used as a conduit for addressing issues of social justice in the valley.
Panelists will include: Stephanie Shonekan, Chair of Afro-American Studies, UMass; Joseph Krupczynski, Director of Civic Engagement and Service Learning, UMass; Omid Shekari, artist and Lecturer in the Department of Art, UMass; Emily Tareila, artist and UMass MFA candidate; and Miatta Kawinzi, multidisciplinary artist and Visiting Professor at Hampshire College. There will be a voter registration table at the Town Hall.
