During the academic school year (2021-2022) Art for Social Change & the Art Therapy Department will host a series of sewing circles virtually, on campus and in the community. Our intention is to create multiple quilts to represent how the pandemic has exacerbated and brought to light longstanding and detrimental effects injustice, inequity and oppression in the United States.
Our collective voices will stitch together our stories and lived experiences, raising critical consciousness of the inequities felt across racial, social, political, economic and cultural differences.
We are planning a regional Art Therapy Symposium in May 2022 when we intend to display some of the quilts to the public.
Starting in October 2021 we will host weekly virtual sessions from 3-6pm every Thursday to create together in our Art for Social Change Open Studio. Register here
