In the California Room
Naima Shalhoub will facilitate a creative/thought-engaging activity on the theme of freedom songs, poetry and imagining a world without prisons. Using a poem about prisons by Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, we will explore how we can activate our own minds to think beyond the confines of prisons--externally and internally--and how to use our creativity and imagination to resist limited thinking and heal and expand beyond the status quo.
HE(ART)WORK invites you to engage, through an interactive format, the works of various leaders and luminaries, who interweave art (music, spoken word, painting, filmmaking, etc.) and activism, and mine our own stories of resilience, liberation, and transformation, through discussion, activities, and activism. This offering is cosponsored by the Spiritual Wellness Team (Campus Ministry) and the Center for Social Justice and Civic Engagement.
