Conversations in Conflict Studies(3)(1)
400 Eggers Hall
"What Does The World Look Like From a Non-violent Point of View? Exchange and Transmission in Art and Society" Anne Beffel, Associate Professor of the School of Art and Design, and Susan Dischiave, Assistant Professor of Practice at the iSchool, will present a publicly engaged art project entitled Mindful Web Connection, which utilizes video art and web technologies to encourage empathetic communication. Additionally, Beffel will present performance art works by the City Meditation Crew. These collaborative art works enable participants to slow down, contemplate, and subsequently reach across boundaries to exchange or transmit their perspectives with people they might not necessarily meet otherwise.
