Join the SSW Faculty Allies for Diversity Committee for a celebration of Community Wise, an intervention designed to reduce substance use for those with histories of incarceration. Community Wise employs Paulo Freire's critical consciousness theory; inspired by pictographs Freire used to engage his research participants.
Grounded in Community-Based Participatory Research, Community Wise has commissioned six paintings by artist Christopher A. Burkle. Publicly exhibited for the first time in the Midwest, these paintings will stimulate a discussion on how we can all develop anti-oppressive thinking and action. Presenters include:
