SVA’s Division of Continuing Education is pleased to present its 3rd annual Art & Activism event at the famed SVA Theatre (333 West 23rd Street, New York, NY 10011), moderated by media personality Valerie Smaldone. This year, we celebrate the power of collectives, performance as political activism, and artistic activations of public space. Join SVA CE for a presentation and performances, and stick around for a reception and KiKi lounge, where guest can design their own protest gear for the election season.
Honored guests will include representatives from the Sing for Hope organization, Hetrick-Martin Institute for LGBTQ youth, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs Percent for Art program, MOVE design collective, and a dedicated community of artists and performers to raise the roof for the immense power of art and design activism.
Giveaways will include customizable megaphones to make your voices heard, tote bags, and art supplies to get guests geared up and pumped up to make a difference.
Connect with the SVACE community this fall for one of their many courses designed to enliven and engage students activist spirit as they work together to combat injustice.
