In questioning how photographers collaborate with NGO's, policy makers, community activists and many others, this course will examine if and how creative work can radicalize civic institutions like the press, citizenship and even government toward greater justice and equity. With a focus on three arenas examined through visual arts: violence, the environment and global equity; the class will present students with a comprehensive window into the discourse and practice(s) of socially engaged art, film, and photography. Through critical discussions, field trips, and visiting artists, the class will create a blueprint and staging ground for students to activate these ideas within their own areas of interest.
