Community Wise! An Art Exhibition and Fish Bowl Conversation


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:

  • Rogério M. Pinto, Associate Professor of Social Work, University of Michigan
  • Liliane Windsor, Assistant Professor of Social Work, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
  • Warren Thompson, Program Director, Urban Renewal Community Corrections
  • Eric Anderson, Newark Community Collaborative Board Member
