In this weeklong workshop, we'll combine international issues with art, a practice we call ARTivism. Join us for a hands-on exploration of how sculpture, theater, music, creative writing and visual storytelling can effectively convey important aspects of local and global issues. These workshops will feature artists who share their own creative processes to help you plan and execute your own projects. Each student will create a compilation of work that will go on display on our final day.

She teaches a course at PSU on Gender and International Development and brings her love of alternative education models to the exploration of the international development field.
