Art, Decolonization, and Our Uprisings

By Lauren HagyNovember 7th, 2018in Events

Date: Saturday, November 10, 2018 at 1 PM – 2:30 PM

Location: College of Arts and Sciences Room B12 (725 Commonwealth Ave)

Description: Our movements are action-oriented and geared around the question: “what kind of society do we want to build?”; followed by, “What do we have to deconstruct in order to build our society in such a way?”. Join us for a lecture and discussion with members of the MTL Collective Amin Husain and Nitasha Dhillon as we explore these questions and unpack how art serves as one mechanism for all of this.
