Event description
Exploring the Arts for Social Transformation

About this Event

The Office of Social Innovation and the Yeates School of Graduate Studies are excited to announce the next seminar in the on-going series for graduate students—Social Innovation: Mobilizing Graduate Scholarship for Social Change.

Social innovation is a centre point of Ryerson’s mission and vision. In this series we understand social innovation to hold a commitment to social justice and social change by recognizing how social problems are rooted in institutionalized values and ideas, practices and structures, entrenched advantage and disadvantage. Social change can happen at many levels, by engaged individuals, groups, organizations and communities, or through changes in beliefs, practices, policies and laws.

Exploring the Arts for Social Transformation with Dr. Ken Moffatt

In the world of social media and technology, a literacy of image and text is more important than ever. In this seminar, hosted by Dr. Ken Moffatt, Jack Layton Chair and Professor, School of Social Work, we will discuss contemporary forms of art that lead to social engagement and social change. Examples will be provided of a variety of socially engaged and innovative art forms. You will engage in a brief exercise that engages you as a creator even if you do not identify as an artist.

Ryerson graduate students from all disciplines are invited to attend. This series qualifies for Future Smart, so bring your passport to be signed.

A light lunch will be served. Space is limited, so register early!
