UPROOTED: An Artist and Educator Panel [November 4, 2020]

UPROOTED served as the unifying theme for this panel discussion which begins with a consideration of borders and the importance of transforming local communities through creative production. The panel took an interdisciplinary approach to art to develop an understanding of the value of place and provide a resource for teachers. Uprooted was organized and presented by Rina Little, Ph.D., associate professor of Art Education, and Andrés Peralta, Ph.D., associate professor of Art Education, at Texas Tech School of Art. Guest speakers included Portia Cobb is a filmmaker, interdisciplinary artist, and associate professor at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee; interdisciplinary artist Raoul Deal, coordinator of the Community Art BA Program at the Peck School of the Arts, UW-Milwaukee; Sean Justice, photographer, art educator, and an assistant professor at Texas State University; and Dawn Stienecker, assistant professor of Instruction at the University of Texas at Austin.
