Spotlight on Care: Ceramics & Intersectionality

12:00-1:00pm Wednesday, November 20, 2019 The Commons
Presented by The Commons and the IPSR Center for Compassionate & Sustainable Communities, in collaboration with the Center for Faculty Development and Mentoring, Office of the Provost, the School of Social Welfare, Watkins Health Services, the College Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the School of Public Affairs and Administration, the KU Public Management Center, the Office of Sexuality and Gender Diversity, the Department of Theatre & Dance, the KU Ombuds Office, the Spencer Museum of Art, and KU Counseling and Psychological Services.

Each Wednesday at noon at The Commons, the series will feature a different topic related to well-being and care and include a component of guided practice. The series aims to devote time to considering the ways we practice care as individuals, in communities, and as a campus, full of resources to broaden understanding. It will highlight a variety of aspects of well-being, with special attention to the expectations of higher education.

On November 20, the session explores Ceramics & Intersectionality. Using her own life experiences as a starting point, Ashlyn Pope discusses how she uses social and historical information to bring awareness to and acknowledgment of intersectionality through her artistic research and practice. This discussion will center the intersection of clay and healing. Led by Ashlyn Pope, 2019-2020 Ceramics Artist in Residence at the Lawrence Arts Center.
