Using Art for Progressive Change
Public Workshop On How Artists Turn Local Causes Into Global Movements
Feb. 7, 2013
Three Cal State Fullerton faculty members from varied disciplines are hosting a free workshop Sunday, Feb. 10, on how artists use cultural materials to create universal messages.
Eric Canin, lecturer in anthropology; Sharon Chappell, assistant professor of elementary and bilingual education; and Hélène Domon, professor of French, are the presenters and hosts. The public is invited to attend the 6-8 p.m. workshop in Room 123 of the Humaniities-Social Sciences Building on campus, 800 N. State College Blvd., Fullerton. Parking is free.
Canin, Chappell and Domon will discuss how artists — painters, poets, musicians and others — from diverse cultures craft messages of progressive change. Among the questions they plan to address: “How do artists stay true to their roots while finding a broad audience?” And, “how do they translate local causes into global movements?”
The event is sponsored by the Left Bank of Orange County; Cal State Fullerton’s College of the Arts, College of Education and College of Humanities and Social Sciences; the departments of Anthropology, Elementary and Bilingual Education and Modern Languages and Literatures; and CSUF’s French Club.
