Fair Play: Art & Social Justice
The SAU Art Department will be hosting its second art & design conference entitled Fair Play: Art & Social Justice. The conference is FREE and will be held April 6-7, 2016. The intention of this symposium is to bring a variety of creative minds together to explore the potential behind art & design as a proactive way to make positive change in society.
In the midst of social conflict and cultural clashes, a medium among us has provided hope, virtue, and connectivity for the human race: art. Throughout history, artists have contextualized challenging issues to instill a stronger sense of reality, perspective, and proactive change in society. Fair Play brings a diverse range of artists together who utilize the power of creativity for the sake of social justice.
