The SAU Art Department invites you to attend our second art & design conference entitled Fair Play: Art & Social Justice. This conference is FREE and will be held April 6-7, 2016.
The intention of this symposium is to bring a variety of creative minds together to explore the potential behind art & design as a proactive way to make positive change in society. From metallic masks crafted for disfigured WWI soldiers to mud stenciling for dissenting voices, we’ve got a little something for everyone!
