Art, Social Justice and the Radical Imaginary: A talk by Favianna Rodriguez

Culture surrounds us all the time. It shapes our identity and forges our collective imagination.  How does art inspire new ways of thinking? How can art-based strategies strengthen our work? Join artist, Favianna Rodriguez as she shares examples of her visual art pieces, and discusses how art can inspire, educate, and help spur the imagination beyond the realms of what politics can do.

Favianna Rodriguez is an interdisciplinary artist, cultural organizer, and political activist based in Oakland, California.

Her art and collaborative projects address migration, economic inequality, gender justice, and ecology.  Rodriguez is the Executive Director of CultureStrike, a national arts organization that engages artists, writers and performers in migrant rights.
