Kuumba Talks Guest Lecture: “Art as a method for change, Creation as a form of structural revolution”
Kuumba Talks is a community speaker series started at Washington University in St. Louis designed to celebrate the creativity, inventiveness, and change-making ideas of students on campus. Talks often have a socially-conscious lens, tackle humanitarian or environmental challenges, or explore an area of future innovation. My guest lecture, “Art as a method for change, Creation as a form of structural revolution,” explores the role of art in resistance and the power of creativity as an accessible entry point to enact change.
