Art Education for Social Justice Symposium – Call for Submissions

Published September 27, 2017

Art and Education for Social Justice invites submissions for papers from scholars, practitioners and artists to share their work in the 9th annual Art and Design Education for Social Justice Symposium. Social justice is a broad objective that inspires an interdisciplinary approach. Art and Education for Social Justice encourages exploration of how art and design can support such initiatives. The goal of this symposium is to share the methodologies and results of practices that strive to have a direct public impact. The encounter will focus on the guiding question: How are art and design inspiring, affecting, and promoting social change?

The Art and Education for Social Justice Symposium provides an opportunity to gain insight into a range of practices aligned with social justice, and aims to start a conversation across disciplinary areas. This symposium embraces a perspective informed broadly by the notion of cultural pedagogies and looks forward to contributions from both in and outside the field of education.

The symposium will be held January 27-28, 2018.  The deadline for submissions is October 15th.  Submissions are closed.

This symposium is jointly hosted by the Department of Art Education, Florida State University and the Art Education Program in collaboration with the Lamar Dodd School of Art and the School of Social Work, University of Georgia.

Proposals should respond to the following thematic areas:

  • The power of imagination: Strategies for re-envisioning, re-imagining, or re-conceptualizing our past, present and future.
  • Ethics / aesthetics: Projects that develop and contextualize art making as praxis.
  • Communities, coalitions and collaboration: Critical approaches to participatory projects.
  • The political now: Emergent practices of resistance, resilience and solidarity in the currentpolitical climate.
