End of Semester Project Showcase and Community Conversation
Performing Arts Studio at the Burlington Road Building, 1804 N. Decatur Rd, Atlanta, GA
Emory Arts and Social Justice (ASJ) Fellows program invites Emory and Atlanta community members to an End-of-Semester Project Showcase and Community Conversation. Now in its second year, ASJ is a partnership between Emory Arts, the Emory University Center for Ethics, and Emory College of Arts and Sciences that places Atlanta artist fellows in Emory classrooms to explore the power of art to inspire change through collective action.
This year, seven artists partnered with Emory professors in Emory College, Laney Graduate School, Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, and the Candler School of Theology to co-teach existing courses. Each pairing will do a short presentation of artistic projects their class created this semester and engage in a conversation about the profound impact of this work on Emory students and the community at large.
About the Arts & Social Justice Fellows Program
The program is a partnership between the Emory College of Arts & Sciences, Emory Arts, and the Emory University Center for Ethics.
Inspired by faith in the power of art to open spaces for conversation, community-making, and collective action, the Arts and Social Justice Fellows program brings six Atlanta artists into Emory classrooms to help students translate their learning into creative activism in the name of racial justice.
Each artist is paired with an Emory faculty member to co-teach an existing course and design a relevant creative project for their students to produce throughout the semester.
