Art and Activism
The arts can be a form of self-expression as well as a means to bring people together to reflect on their collective identities, experiences, hopes, and struggles. Through this kind of collaboration, artists help to build and strengthen communities while amplifying the voices of those with whom they work. This virtual panel invites two artists, Silvia López Chavez and Michael Aghahowa, to discuss how their work intersects with activism and community engagement.
The conversation will be led by Voices Against Injustice Board members, Doneeca Thurston (Executive Director at Lynn Museum/LynnArts) and Siddhartha V. Shah (Director of Education and Civic Engagement, and Curator of South Asian Art at Peabody Essex Museum).
Hosted by Voices Against Injustice and Salem State University First Year Experience as part of Advocacy Month at Salem State University.
