Community Forum & Lunch

Saturday, October 7, 2017 / 12:00–2:00pm

MIT Building 9-255

Free and open to the public; registration required.


Socially engaged art-making tactics can encourage the disruption of long-held cultural, social and historical assumptions. B. Stephen Carpenter II, Ida Ely Rubin Artist in Residence at the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) and the Department of Urban Studies & Planning (DUSP), seeks to challenge conventional social, cultural and visual assumptions of teaching, discussing and owning segregationist practices. We invite the community to participate and consider a range of recent participatory art projects that employ digital photography, social media and public performances as a means to explore themes of segregation, racism, accommodation, access and water as a basic human right. The program will have a special focus on resources for K–12 teachers; for more information, contact higginsk@mit.edu.

Events are open to all community members. We welcome people of every identity, ability/disability, and background, and will strive to meet all needs for full participation.
