Description

Culture and community are central to an understanding of the human endeavors and identities we have in the contemporary world. 

To appreciate the idea of “it takes a village” from the perspective of culture, community and family—in all nations, races, and religions. How human rights are connected to culture, community and identity through reflection on one’s own identity and relationship to society.

It is important to understand how personal narrative is constructed: the mechanisms by which we form identity, define ourselves, and place ourselves in broader contexts and communities. The relationships among social media, imagery, identity and context and the implications for effecting individual thought and change around the world. In this microclass you will learn about the use of visual arts and social media for social/community action.
