DreamYard's Art as a Weapon Conference
Keynote address by Dr. Shawn Ginwright
Happening Yesterday, Happened Tomorrow
In response to newspaper articles and images, participants will learn about and discuss the Black Lives Matter movement and look at the historical context of police brutality and racial profiling. We will explore how artists have responded to injustice and will discuss how poetry, performance, and movement can be a form of peaceful protest. Hands-on art-making activities and small group work will give participants an opportunity to create and share a collaborative piece.
