The artist Cauleen Smith creates works of art that speak out against injustices such as racism and police brutality. Smith designs her large, hand-sewn banners to either hang from the ceiling or to be carried in processions as a means of inspiring change. She says, “I think that art might be the only thing at this point...The only thing that could create conversation and dialogue or reconciliation or mediation.”
Together, we will look at Cauleen Smith’s work and will discuss pressing issues that are important to you and to the world. Then you can create your own sign or banner that communicates your ideas and amplifies your voice.
