Aiming for Freedom: Race, Reparations, and Right Paths
August 7 - August 11$125 – $775
An on-campus multiracial space for the bold visioning of our shared liberation through the development of individual and collective art works.
Co-facilitated with three Black feminist visual artists, the “Aiming for Freedom” arts-based workshop is a multiracial space for the bold visioning of our shared liberation through the development of individual and collective art works.
Acknowledging the essential yet marginalized position of art and artists in the public discourse on racial repair, this workshop provides participants to be guided in an artistic exploration of our freedom. Recognizing the importance of a material investment in art and artists, a minimum collective commitment of $10K in reparations from registrants is required for the workshop to take place.
Participants will enjoy art instruction, artist talks, and discussion about the artistic path to liberation in this week-long immersive experience. Registrants are encouraged to make pledges of any amount based on ability and inspiration. Ninety percent of pledged money will support the facilitating artists and ten percent will provide scholarships for Café Darkness writing workshops for people of color.
