“Art & Education for Social Justice” Symposium was an Inspiring Success

The “Art and Education for Social Justice Symposium” hosted by the Department of Art Education on the campus of Florida State University on January 27th and 28th (https://art4socialjustice.wordpress.com ) was an inspiring success! The conference chair, Dr. Rachel Fendler – along with our co-sponsors from the University of Georgia- organized an amazing line-up that featured a keynote address by Dr. Amber Johnson (St. Louis University) entitled, “The Revolution Requires Imagination, Forgiveness, and Fun”. Leading scholars and practitioners invested in art and education for social justice from Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Texas, South Carolina, Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee, North Carolina, Utah, and Indiana shared their work and ideas. We were honored to host our presenters from Florida State University, University of Georgia, St. Louis University, University of Cincinnati, University of Dayton, the Art Institute of Chicago, University of Arizona, University of North Texas, Kent State University, University of Kentucky, University of Memphis, University of North Carolina Greensboro, Humboldt State University, Millersville University, Valdosta State University, University of Utah, University of South Carolina, Indiana University, University of Notre Dame, Michigan, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.
