Thank you so much for your interest in the Art of Social Justice Spring 2013 conference. Our goal for this year is to explore urban planning and urban social movements in relation to social justice. This conference, entitled People Power in the Polis, is curated by the Collective for Social Change and will take place on May 7, 2013. We are looking to hold workshops, panels, and discussions on issues including, but not limited to, urban agriculture, bicycle maintenance, urban social movements, gentrification and immigration. But in order to make this conference a success we need your help! If you would like to participate or have ideas for panels, workshops, actions, or performances please reply to this email with a proposal. We look forward to hearing your ideas and collaborating with you this spring!

Join the Collective for Social Change and participants from Occupy Denver for a discussion of the Occupy Wall Street Movement and what it has to do with you.
On the Auraria Campus, North Classroom 1130 from 3:30 until 4:45 on Thursday
This panel discussion will be pragmatically focused with plenty of time for audience interaction, questions, and discussion and a special focus on what the Occupy Movement has to do with the higher education system.
Among the topics that will be covered:
–What exactly has Occupy accomplished?
–How does Occupy Denver “work” internally? network with outside groups? connect to national movement? For ex, with respect to the upcoming May Day – May 1st general strike and celebration at the Denver Civic Center?
–How can I study online and learn about the Occupy movement … in Denver and across the country?
–How can I get involved in specific working groups and actions of Occupy Denver?
As we move toward the National May Day – May 1st General Strike and celebration, don’t miss out on opportunities to learn and have some fun! Join in our growing and expanding and spring re-awakening!
The purpose of this workshop is to demonstrate how the medium of digital stories can be use to help build a movement. In this workshop, I will talk about key elements in digital stories and why they are useful for activists. Using a digital story I made about the wages of home aids who help people with disabilities as a jumping off point, we will discuss how digital stories can be used for other social justice issues. Hosted by Katrina at 2pm on Thrsday in the Tivoli Multicultural Lounge.
