Workshop: Community + Arts + Education
Can study abroad become community engagement?
Can the arts empower youth?
Can filmmaking create empathy?
Friday, February 21, from 1:30 to 3:30 PM in Melville Library N-3060
This interactive workshop will discuss methods of artistic intervention and community engagement that have been employed by La Poderosa Media Project across Latin America and the United States over the past eight years. Workshop facilitators will emphasize the connection between arts programs and community-based pedagogies that can be applied to university curricula, nonprofit organizations, and social enterprises. Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to attend.

“Yo vivo también en un país extranjero
en el cual me dedico
a inocentes e inútiles tareas,
y en el que seguramente moriré
a la hora señalada,
como suele ocurrirle a la gente
en lo que llaman su propio país
o su país ajeno, pues no hay sino distancias
mayores o menores de frontera a frontera,
con líneas divisorias que uno mismo dibuja”
(de “Datos personales”)
