Humanities Center, Institute for Diversity in the Arts (IDA)

The Institute for Diversity in the Arts Presents: Art + Community: Division, Resilience & Reconciliation

A nine week lecture series bringing together the top creators and activists working at the intersections of art, culture, and social change.

--

Freedom is meaningful only insofar as it lifts us all, especially those of us who have been done the most harm. In times of violence and polarization, art heals and brings people together, and can articulate new ways of finding community and freedom.

In this weekly lecture series, we will explore how we make and sustain community, especially in the face of threats from within and without. We will do this especially through examining how artists and culture workers of color develop and advance practices that build mutuality, criticality, renewal, trust, and joy in the face of ongoing racial injustice and cultural inequity

--

Week 4, IDA Associate Director A-lan Holt will moderate a discussion with Mia Mingus of the Bay Area Transformative Justice Collaborative.

Mia Mingus is a writer, educator and community organizer for disability justice and transformative justice. She is a queer physically disabled korean woman transracial and transnational adoptee from the Caribbean. She works for community, interdependency and home for all of us, not just some of us, and longs for a world where disabled children can live free of violence, with dignity and love. As her work for liberation evolves and deepens, her roots remain firmly planted in ending sexual violence.
