The Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies Symposium: Art + Environmental Justice

A free, full-day interdisciplinary symposium to promote dialog on the interplay of environmentalism, social justice, design, education, and the arts.

Scholars, activists, educators, designers and artists working on environmental justice issues will explore the politics surrounding systemic biases and the ways that environmental degradation and climate change intersect with race, gender, and class to create disproportionate outcomes on both a local and global scale.

The day’s agenda will place art and design at the center of these conversations, investigating how creative practices contribute to community and global struggles for environmental justice.

Nov 22 – Nov 23
