Emory University’s Arts and Social Justice Fellows Program (ASJ) presents a project showcase and community conversation Tuesday, December 6 at the Switchyards Downtown Club. Doors open at 6 p.m. and programming begins at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, registration preferred.
Featuring opening remarks from Carla Freeman, interim dean of Emory College of Arts & Sciences, the event program includes live dance, spoken word, chamber music, durational performance, and a panel discussion. Prior to the performances, attendees are invited to explore multimedia art installations created in collaboration with Emory students, artist fellows, and additional Atlanta-based artists.
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.
