Examining Whiteness Through Art (Brown Bag)

Bring your lunch and join us for a noon-time discussion exploring the intersection between art, psychology, and transformative social change with Dr. Chris Boyd. 

Chris Boyd's work challenges what most of us have come to know and accept as the "reality" of the world we live in. He believes a shift in the consciousness of white America is needed in order to bring about change. Boyd explores how a socially engaged imagination can be used to confront common notions of whiteness and create a paradigm shift.
