A discussion and workshop exploring art making in collaboration with social justice movements, through the lens of labor, equity, and identity. Movement Art WORK is a collaborative event highlighting the work of movement artists. Through an interactive format, we hope to explore issues such as the disparities in gender and labor in social movements as well as understand what work is valued above others and the contributions to the movement by grassroots organizations.
