What does it mean to perform protest? How can we activate activism in new creative ways?
Laura C. Harris Scholar-in-Residence Gabrielle Civil has been working with Denison University students to explore these questions. In the semester-long “Activating / Performance \ Activism” project, students research experimental art making; connect with local and visiting performers/ artists/ activists; and conduct deep research into social movements and social justice issues. This dynamic event is the culmination of that process. Sharing course insights and premiering live art actions, Civil and students will showcase, perform and propose experimental art strategies for social change.
