The Call for Papers for the fifth annual ART&DESIGN for Social Justice Symposium is now open. Submissions must be received by October 4, 2010 at midnight. The ART&DESIGN for Social Justice Symposium will be held Monday, January 17, 2011 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday) on the campus of Florida State University. The Symposium focuses on how the tools and inherent abilities within the areas of art and design can be utilized in addressing issues confronting less advantaged groups within our local communities, states, regions or world. The event is designed to generate synergy, spawn collaborative projects among participants, create new scholarly initiatives, and allow examination of the role that art and design play in the telling of a broader social narrative.
Papers are solicited from academics, graduate students, and practitioners from the broad spectrum of the arts and design that interface with issues of social justice (architecture, interior design, art education, fine art, dance, theater, music, film, social services, etc.) Full details of the Call for Papers and past Symposia Proceedings can be found on the Symposium website: http://socialjusticesymposium.fsu.edu.
The ART&DESIGN for Social Justice Symposium is sponsored by the Department of Interior Design and the Department of Art Education, and underwritten by the College of Visual Arts, Theatre & Dance of Florida State University. This symposium is an annual, international event.
