Teaching Assistant Professor Jennifer Bergmark receives Campus Call to Action to Address Racism & Social Injustice Research Program Funding

November 2, 2021

Bergmark will receive $25,000 for her proposal “Building Community through Collaborative Public Art Projects.”

“Embedded in the belief that the arts can provide opportunities to highlight inequities, advocate for communities, and revitalize community school pride, we are proposing a year-long community-based pilot project that is a collaboration between the art education program at the School of Art and Design and faculty and staff at Garden Hills Elementary School. The research team will collaborate to plan and create a series of public art projects to investigate the role of the arts in revitalizing communities through civic engagement, collective care, and advocacy.”
