Students are invited to apply
The Southwest Airlines Art & Social Engagement Project at Emory University currently is accepting applications from students across Emory College and the graduate and professional schools. The project seeks to engage the Emory University student body with Atlanta non-profits as co-creators of thought-provoking collaborative art projects designed to address important social issues in Atlanta based on proposals by Artist Facilitators.
The production process will involve all participants in a meaningful way - invoking critical thinking and reflection about social issues. The finished project should also communicate a critical and creative outlook about social issues facing Atlanta, should increase awareness about said issues, and catalyze action toward making positive change to address those issues.
Students need not have demonstrated artistic skills or abilities but must demonstrate a commitment to public engagement with pressing social and political issues, community-building, and the ability to work well in teams.
