The Departments of Interior Design and Art Education in the College of Visual Arts, Theatre, and Dance, will host the 2014 Art and Design for Social Justice Symposium on January 20, 2014. The event will focus on how the tools and inherent abilities within the areas of art and design can be utilized in addressing issues confronting less advantaged groups within our local communities, states, regions or world. The event is designed to generate synergy, spawn collaborative projects among participants, create new scholarly initiatives, and allow examination of the role that art and design play in the telling of a broader social narrative.
The seventh annual symposium will be held on the campus of Florida State University in the William Johnston Building. The event will include a dance performance, keynote movie and moderated discussion, a variety of presentations and posters on social justice issues, and will conclude with a performance by musical theatre students. The registration fee is $30 for non-students and $15 for students and includes breakfast and lunch. Additional information and registration can be found at interiordesign.fsu.edu
