Citizen Artistry: Using Your Art to Shape the World Around You

Citizen Artistry: Using Your Art to Shape the World Around You invites attendees to explore the link between their role as a citizen in society and their role as an artist and/or academic. The Co-Founders of ICTA BIPOC will guide attendees through a series of conversations and exercises that allow them to investigate this link so that they may navigate personal or career goals in conjunction with social responsibility.
