The pandemic has made clear that there is no “normal” to go back to while also highlighting persistent inequalities in our communities and educational environments. How are we approaching the necessary work of re-imagining the future? This session will focus on how artists and art educators are transforming a range of existing structures by developing new modes of teaching, learning, and creating together.
