Socially Engaged Art in the Modern Classroom 

Presenter: JC Futrell, RedLine

In this workshop, we will explore the importance of Socially Engaged Art in the modern classroom through the lens of the working artist and educator. As both a professional artist and educator, I have found Socially Engaged Art to be an immeasurable tool in the classroom. Far too often instructors and artists struggle with relevant lesson plans to address complex issues. The modern classroom is an ever-changing ecosystem and without a defined paradigm to navigate through it, the instructor as the guide may lose an opportunity to lead a class to a higher level of cultural, political and emotional understanding. This workshop will examine the core principles of Socially Engaged Art and take a deeper look into We Still Live, a community-based art project, inspired by Denver artist Thomas Evans. This project is in collaboration with Arts Street@YEA, Thomas Evans, Paul Hamilton, Denver gang prevention programs, and Ancestry.com in order to offer a positive alternative to negative influences by exploring self-identity and cultural heritage through art in youth.
