PIC 352 - Creative Cultural Organizing
In this course, students will explore and contribute to a dynamic body of work at the intersection of arts, culture and activism. Students will learn about a range of contemporary practices, through readings, guest speakers, and hands-on workshops. Each student will draw from their own cultural context to design a cultural organizing project, then collaborate with a member-led organizing hub in Central Brooklyn. Throughout, students will examine why and how communities organize to protect their rights and exert power; and how arts and culture can be integrated into this work.
