Event Description

Faculty Talk by Sharon Friedler, Professor of Dance and director of the Dance Program

The arts are an important locus for social change. This has been true in times past and is increasingly the case today locally, nationally, and globally. Artists worldwide use their talents to fight against injustice and oppression. Explore the artivist (artist + activist) through discussion and video material from student work as well as  conversation  from Friedler's own extensive experience as an artivist throughout the United States, Italy, Canada, Ghana, Poland, and Wales. Examples of Swarthmore students who have pursued work as artivists will also be featured. Join us for a networking reception following the talk with students who are engaged in social action work, sponsored by the Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility.
