AWI Sanctuary Space presents: What’s Representation Got to Do With It?
An ongoing Continued Connections program that creates virtual spaces for students to connect at the intersection of art and mental health.
For this Sanctuary Space, join us as we explore the challenges for marginalized groups to tell their stories, what it really means for underrepresented folx to see themselves represented, and the inherent limits of those representations for tackling systemic inequality. We will be joined by artists + mental health advocates Rebecca Lieb and Calvin Walker to watch and discuss short films and mainstream movie clips* to discuss representation in the media and its intersection with art and mental health.
Clips screened in addition to OLIVE films*:
*Tips and guidelines for watching these clips alone or with friends
