Back in lively Jaén, Spain for another lecture on Art, Community, Education, and Justice at the Universidad de Jaén. This time we created zines to explore concepts of critical pedagogy, empowering learners, and collaboration in social justice art education. With a few breaks for café con leche in between, we had provocative conversations about Roma audiences, the role of music in community building, and the possibilities of using visual art even if you’re “not an artist.”
I’m off to South Africa to co-lead a two-week study abroad program on the role of museums, art, and cultural heritage in social change through Michigan Sate University. Travel vicariously on our adventures in museums, community arts, and giraffe-spotting on the program blog.
