Marquette will co-host “Art Activated,” the inaugural social justice summit from NŌ STUDIOS, Nov. 15-16, with the second day of the event taking place at the AMU.
The summit will feature a variety of activists, artists, authors and academics converging to discuss the lived experience of disenfranchisement and offer solutions to some of the most pressing social justice issues affecting us locally, nationally and internationally.
Focused on “The Lived Experience of Disenfranchisement,” Saturday’s sessions will explore criminal justice reform, human trafficking, fair housing and art as a change agent. Notable speakers and participants include actors and activists Freida Pinto and Richard Cabral; Frank Almond, concertmaster of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra; Chrishaunda Lee Perez, author, producer and television host; Nancy Yarbrough, founder and executive director of Fresh Start Learning in Milwaukee; activist, poet and professor Peggy Rozga; and professors Michael Dinwiddie, Millery Polyne and Kristin Holton from NYU’s Gallatin School.
Registration for Art Activated is open to the public. Registration is required to attend all events. More information, including a complete schedule, is available on the NŌ STUDIOS website.
