Section: A

CRN: 13988

Credits: 3

How do race and power play a role in art and design fields? In this course, students will cultivate an analysis of race and power across fields of art, design and management. By building an understanding of creative fields as tools for racial equity, racial justice and freedom, we will build a foundation in which we explicitly examine race as a critical factor in our daily work and practices. We will assess the impact of historic and contemporary racial justice and racial equity work across creative fields that have been led by people of color. Then we will explore ways we can work towards equity, access and justice within individual and collective work in creative fields, both currently and in the future. In order to ensure an ongoing practice that is both critical and sustainable, self and community care practices will be prioritized.

Open to: All university graduate degree students and upper level undergraduate degree students.
