Artist Talk: Stirring Up Trouble in Troubling Times

OSU Edmon Low Library, Peggy V. Helmerich Browsing Room

This talk will focus on Dr. Kim Cosier's work with a group of activists in Milwaukee, WI. They have been collaborating with community partners ranging from the immigrant rights organization Voces de la Frontera to teachers’ unions, Stop the Oil Trains, March for our Lives, and Black Lives Matter activists. Hosting actions called Art Builds; we make art that is meant to change the world. Sustained engagement with art, activism, and activists has given Dr. Cosier the opportunity to formulate guiding questions about the aims of such actions, and begin to consolidate the strategies that can be replicated anywhere by anyone interested in employing art to join the global uprising for justice.

Panel Discussion: Intersections of Education, Art, and Activism
5-6 p.m.
OSU Edmon Low Library, Peggy V. Helmerich Browsing Room
A panel discussion moderated by Dr. Erin Dyke, Assistant Professor of Curriculum Studies, Presented in partnership with the OSU College of Education

In the Spring of 2018, Oklahoma teachers shut down schools across the state to make demands on lawmakers to reverse years of disinvestment in public education. Alongside West Virginia educators, they sparked a wave of national resistance to decades of troubling education austerity policies. Nationally, media coverage of the walkouts focused mainly on the inspiring, massive rallies at the capitol. Yet, what kinds of labor, art, and community building actually led to and sustained this exciting moment in Oklahoma? What is the role of art and community in creating such a sweeping moment of refusal to go about business as usual?
