Go back to summer school to learn about art and social change
The digital arts organization eyebeam.org is running their Summer School 2007 program, and this month they offer their three-part workshop entitled, Artists as Agents of Social Change, which costs $75. Students learn about and experiment with activism and public interventions.
The program kicks off on Saturday July 14th, when you can learn how three different artists, Steve Lambert, Adam Bobbette, and Robert Ransick, combine group action into their artistic practice. Then, over the following week, choose one of three clinics and actually try your hand at creating a project. The clinics have intriguing titles such as "Architectural Interventions in Public Space" and "neuroTransmitter." Finally, the last session meets on Saturday, July 28th, where participants in the program will show their projects and bring them out to the public.
You can find sign up information and get all the details at the eyebeam.org site.
