Social Justice Art Festival 2017
In Our Space: Using Art to Name our Reality
The Social Justice Art Festival aims to explore how art can be used as a tool to promote social justice and encourage dialogue among community members, social work students, and the University of Michigan family at large. The festival will feature a variety of artwork from artists in the University of Michigan community and beyond, including visual displays, musical performances, and interactive installations. The artwork submitted highlights a range of social justice topics, including internationality, body acceptance, identity, and protest, all of which connect back to the theme of what it means to claim, move throughout, and inhabit space. There will be locally sourced and cultivated coffee and tea available for a small fee.
