The UCLA Visual and Performing Arts Education (VAPAE) Program, in collaboration with the Department of World Arts & Cultures/Dance (WAC/D) and the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies (GSEIS), seeks to bring together communities from diverse backgrounds to initiate conversation about how art can empower and enlighten people about the migration experience in Los Angeles, as well as other relevant local, global and social topics.
The monarch butterfly is a symbol Favianna Rodriguez has used throughout much of her activism and art work, serving as a representation of crossing of borders and the beauty of migration. Illuminating Favianna’s personal and artistic mission, which is to inspire social and political change through art, cultural organizing, and technology, her presentation will offer new ideas pertaining to how we speak about, write about, and create around issues of migration and social engagement.
The community arts gallery display set up before the event, and the panel discussion and audience Q&A following Favianna's keynote will both further expand upon, explore, and represent these key topics.
This event is co-presented by the UCLA Department of Visual and Performing Arts Education, the Department of World Arts & Cultures/Dance, and the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies.
