Voice, Art, and Community: A UMN Series
The Voice, Art, and Community: UMN Series features diverse voices through the arts and humanities. Events in this series explore lived experiences and individual perspectives of creators, introducing nuanced conversations that further our understanding of equity, justice, and our public and institutional history. The art goes beyond what we see and hear and allows us to learn about the experiences and circumstances that inspired it. This collaborative initiative features events from across the University of Minnesota system and community partners.
