The Barnett Fellows Field School hosts Power & Potentials: Justice, Equity, and Advocacy in the Arts on Wednesday, March 22 from 10:00 AM-11:00 AM in the Barnett Center Collaboratory. Moderated by PhD student and Barnett Fellow De'Avin Mitchell, the panel seeks to explore the intersections of advocacy and justice in the arts.
The power generated from collective and community action has the potentials to make change at the local level and beyond. This understanding of power takes into account the systemic and hierarchical structures that affect change. The panel consists of individuals with unique histories and expertise as educators, practitioners, and innovators in the arts and cultural space. Together, the panel hopes to expand its audience's perceptions of power, justice, and advocacy through research, pedagogy, practice, and civic engagement.
Panelists include Dr. Terron Banner, Manager of Community Learning and Experience at Ohio State's Urban Arts Space; Dr. Tiffany Bourgeois, Assistant Professor in the Department of Arts Administration, Education and Policy at The Ohio State University; Dr. Antonio Cuyler, Professor of Music in the School of Music, Theatre & Dance at the University of Michigan; and Dr. Brea Heidelberg, Associate Professor in the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design at Drexel University. A free networking event with refreshments presented by Central Ohio Student Advocates for the Arts (COSAA) will follow.
