  2. Curtis Center Art for Equity Contest: What does Health Equity mean to Future Leaders?

    April 19, 2024 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

    The School of Social Work Curtis Center for Health Equity Research and Training is hosting a creative Art for Equity Contest for undergraduate students to showcase what health equity means to them. The goal of the contest is to engage undergraduate students across the University of Michigan in thinking about health equity in a meaningful and creative way. The Curtis Center Art for Equity Contest will educate and increase engagement with health equity, but also highlight how individuals define it in their own context. 

    We held an initial webinar to introduce the contest, explain the submission process and criteria, and serve as a Q & A session. A video recording of this session is available in this folder, which contains resources and information for contestants.

    Undergraduate students are invited to submit a piece of art in the medium of their choice (video, poem, audio, photobook, painting, graphics, comic, etc.) that showcases what health equity means to them, by Monday, April 1st, 2024. Submissions will be accepted from both individuals and pairs. Along with their submission, students will be asked to provide a brief explanation of their piece and how it represents what health equity means to them. More information, as well as a recording of the information session, is available here.

    At the Healthcare Equity Month event on Friday, April 19th from 12:30 - 1:30 pm the Director of the Curtis Center will define health equity in the context of Curtis Center research and training, as well as announce the top 3 winners! $1000 cash prizes will also be rewarded to the top 3 submissions. The deadline to register for this event is April 11th, 2024.

  4. Abolitionist Praxis: Can Our Institutions Change?

    April 19, 2024 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

    How does abolitionist praxis, an engagement in full cycles of action, reflexivity and critical theory, allow us to challenge institutionalized carceral practices and work for institutional change? This event, generously sponsored by Conversations Across Social Disciplines Joseph Veroff and Katherine Luke Fund and the Social Justice Impact Fund, brings together abolitionist scholars in the fields of Social Work and Education to discuss the ways that they apply abolitionist praxis in relation to the institutions and systems in which they conduct research - the child welfare system, the higher education system and the financial/banking system. They will share strategies and tactics we gain from employing an abolitionist perspective to institutional and system change, and offer ideas on how we can work towards creating and sustaining liberatory spaces and structures.
