About

  • UWM Community Arts Marsupial Bridge

Art Activism

Curriculum is focused on art and community-engagement, community cultural development, and the pursuit of social and environmental justice. Students realize this through arts activity partnerships with a variety of community institutions and grassroots organizations, such as Beintween, Casa Romero, Flourish Fest, the Jewish Home Center, and Neu-Life.

Through connecting studio coursework with UWM’s Cultures and Communities program, students receive the tools to create their own personal and collaborative community art projects. These projects are designed to allow students to participate as agents of change through their art.

To Whitney, the residency is about much more than just planning activities for residents. It’s about building intergenerational friendships she wouldn’t otherwise.
