Public Narrative and Movement Art: A Lunchtime Workshop Series with Dr. Marta Moreno Vega, President and Founder Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute, Adjunct Professor Department of Art & Public Policy, NYU Tisch School of the Arts

Throughout history, artists have been the visionary creative voice to address issues impacting civil society. Artists have been the creative articulators of the sign of the times and the aesthetic creative voice for providing pathways for positive change. Culture and art are the visionary articulators of the values that are important in sustaining and creating a vision and practice of justice and equity. Culture and art of diverse communities in the world are instrumental in creative, positive action for change. Examining art movements for change, starting with the Harlem Renaissance to the present, discussions will provide examples of artists addressing positive change. These talks will engage students in the participatory process of defining voice and developing a creative public project addressing today's public discourse.

Open to all NYU students, faculty and staff. ID required for entry into NYU buildings.
