    Need to Know Webcast: Social Justice Art Education
    February 21, 2018 | 7-8 pm ET
    Cost: FREE

    How can educators foster a critical consciousness concerning the systems of inequality through experiential activities in the study and making of art? Using the sources, processes, and consequences of oppression as well as recognizing one’s relationship to being a part of changing the conditions of oppression, how can you teach toward everyday, brave upstander actions?

    Impassioned by social justice issues of equity and diversity, the curricular team of this NAEF grant-funded project created a generative living curricula titled “Social Justice Art Encounters with Linda Stein’s Art”—an interactive website that explores social justice themes in Stein’s artwork.

    Presenters will discuss how this curriculum teaches toward understanding the value of diversity, appreciating that everyone is responsible for the well-being of others, (re)imagining what global citizenship can be, and considering how art education plays a role toward social justice.

    Explore encounters with Stein’s art series, all of which are designed to foster critical consciousness and upstander action to challenge injustice. Gain a firsthand look at this interactive website that explores social justice themes in Stein’s artwork, and learn how to integrate the website’s functionality and content into your teaching. Pre- and post-questionnaires will allow for participant feedback, and help to inform the team’s ongoing research.

    Please note that participation in this webcast does not include NAEA professional development credit.
