This summer institute will teach basic social justice concepts through arts-based practices. Participants will integrate all they have learned by working with a digital video and graphic design artist to create an art piece from a social justice framework of gender equity. Institute participants collaborate alongside CSU faculty, students, and community educators through teambuilding, intercultural dialogue, collaboration across differences, nurturing individual and collective voice, and fostering community dialogue by emphasizing skills that promotes social justice advocacy. Students can expect to engage in hands on learning in storytelling, image theatre, painting, designing, writing, dance, and film/video to develop the mural. In the process they not only learn what a career in the arts through a gender justice lens looks and feels like but also how the art fits into their lives and communities by addressing issues of equity, belonging, access, justice and how the creative
process is a part of all of our stories.

Experience will include:
§ Hands-on experience working with CSU faculty and students through art-based practices.
§ Expert advice on applying to college, admission requirements, financial aid, housing, and careers
§ Meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
§ Certificate of Completion
