1. Students will get familiar with and will develop an awareness of issues and concerns related to social justice and inequality
2. Students will learn about some of the key challenges that our societies face in trying to accommodate increasingly diverse cultural groups.
3. Students will develop critical literacies through assigned readings, a written assignment, and by participating in group projects, addressing both historical and contemporary issues of different discrimination practices and how to transform them.
4. Students will be challenged to think more deeply about the meanings of concepts such as citizenship, borders, culture, assimilation, identity, difference, and equality, among others.
5. Students will get familiar with arts-based methodologies to develop the community dialogue and space for social transformation.
6. Students will develop their own action research project and apply it in one of the collaborative communities.


The purpose of this course is to explore various facets of social injustice and inequality in everyday narratives and practices and to use our creativity and peformative tools to critically address them: to rewrite, to reconstruct and finally to empirically transform them together with the communities. With the help of arts-based methods, from applied drama, to digital storytelling, creative writing and visual arts, we examine the impact of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and other aspects of group identities in the context of social justice and inequeality. Course is highly interactive and consists of (1) interdisciplinary approach on historical and contextual understandings of social justice and inequality; and (2) hands-on learning and experiencing of different performative practices for raising the social awarness and engaging the communities. As part of the course, students will design their own projects and apply them in local environment; they will explore dilemmas and challenges arising from issues of social justice and inequality through role-play; creative community encounters; and debates and engagements with different social groups. Course outcomes will be presented publically in a final event in the form of short performances, digital storytelling, exhibition, poetry slam and community gathering.
