This Thursday and Friday March 9th and 10th join DNDA and Reel Grrls at our Arts Social Justice Symposium!

The event will take place at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.

Arts for social justice, encompasses a wide range of visual and performing art that aim to raise critical consciousness, build community, and motivate individuals to promote social change.

Art is used as a means to record history, shape culture, cultivate imagination, and harness individual and social transformation. Art can generate awareness, and also be a catalyst to engage community members to take action around a social issue. Social justice art, consequently allows people to develop agency to interrupt and alter oppressive systemic patterns or individual behaviors.

We have invited speakers specializing in film, literature, and visual arts with samples of their work to discuss and answer questions from participants and also discuss the importance of social justice art education because it combines the critique of social injustices and the use of art as a mechanism to engage with social issues.
