DSGN 395: Art, Making & Anti-Racism

Quarter Offered

Fall : Fridays 1-3:50 pm ; Pam Daniels and Alex Birdwell

Description

In this new course, we'll create art as a means to draw attention to current challenges combating racism. There will be bi-weekly prompts to inspire you, centered on the themes of Tema Okun’s work. You'll have access to Ford Building fabrication facilities, ranging from the shop to the mechatronics lab to the Corner Makery.

 This hands-on, studio-based class is open to all undergraduate and graduate students interested in creating meaningful, well-considered artifacts; prior ”making” experience advised, or come ready to invest significant time and learn quickly.

This course is envisioned for in-person learning only at this time, though we will continue to assess that as time goes on.

Enrollment is limited to sixteen students and we seek to create a diverse classroom in terms of backgrounds and majors. Interested? Send a note to pam@northwestern.edu and birdwell@northwestern.edu explaining a bit about you and what intrigues you about the class. Questions? Ask!
