This student-led and student-designed session will ask participants to visualize liberation. What does liberation look like? How do community-based art and activism work towards liberating society from oppression? Students will share their visions by presenting their findings and final projects from a 9-week class, led by Tiffany Jones at City-As School. Part of their studies included the formation of the inaugural Summit Study Group, in which Creative Time and Printed Matter teamed up to engage students in Summit thematics.
