Join fellow artists, educators, scholars, students and change makers in May and June 2021 for the Crafting Change Symposium, a fully virtual event hosted by the Center for Convergence (StudiOC) at Oberlin College and Conservatory. Crafting Change features presentations by educators and makers from around the world working across disciplines and with students of all ages. Presentations examine the critical contemporary issues facing educators and students today. Speakers will address crisis-informed teaching and learning, creativity in the classroom, applied critical making, and experiential learning in remote and hybrid classrooms. Symposium highlights include a maker series featuring artists working at the intersection of craft and technology, lunchtime panel conversations with expert artists and educators, weekend workshops, and special events. Winter Term students will attend and support symposium events, compile a symposium zine, and showcase their own creative and pedagogical work. This May/June Winter Term is open to all students..
