Claudia Jones said, “A people’s art is the genesis of their freedom.” This class will investigate just that: art and culture, its production, and the groundwork it lays for liberation struggles. What is the role of art and culture in building revolutionary consciousness? What are ways that art and culture can be recaptured by the people and used to build our movements? How can we collectively imagine and build our future? Through the study of historical moments and present struggles, we will create proposals for art & cultural production in our current moment. This class, though just over an hour, seeks to ignite future collaborations and cultural projects. We have a world to win!
