The Activist Artist: Update

12/11/2020

An update on The Activist Artist: Art as an Engine of Social Justice.

Progress is being made on The Activist Artist: Art as an Engine of Social Justice. Dr. Michael Nickens, Dr. Matthew Dievendorf, and Dr. Wendi Manuel-Scott (CHHS), continue their work and have been successful in moving things forward.


Dr. Scott is running creative projects in her School of Integrative Studies courses that are aligned with the course module. The first course in the series, Songs of Dissident Dissonance (INTS 375-DL5/MUSI 492-DL1), will be offered in the spring 2021 semester. In addition, students can now apply to join the Activist-Artist cohort.


This will all be brought together in the spring of 2021 to create performances for the commemoration of the Memorial to the Enslaved People of George Mason.
