Teaching Social Justice Through Art

Identity is a filter through which we view the world. Examining our own lens is critical to building culturally proficient learning spaces. Art as a medium assists educators in promoting self-reflection about identity, dialogue about difference, and empathetic understanding. We will explore how Art can bridge conversations that address bias, race, inequity, and membership. Leave with tools to facilitate classroom conversations about racial bias, immigration, mental health, and being an ally.
