How can the expressive arts affect change in communities? This Engaged Learning course challenges the understanding of what it means to be empowered and how to be an agent of empowerment. Students will intern at community-based organizations that serve youth using arts disciplines such as theatre games, the visual arts, creative writing, poetry, rap and dance. The internships involve a range of time commitments ranging from 3-5 hours per week. In addition, the class meets once a week. The class fosters students’ ability to apply the expressive arts as a catalyst for change in issues of social justice. Students learn how the arts are applied as healing tools in response to trauma and the impact of racism and classism on equal access to services and educational resources for youth in the United States. The internship experiences prepare students to engage in diverse settings as well as provide opportunities to communicate across differences, operate with humility, and be exposed to the realities of youth living in our community.
