Event Description

2019’s Social Work Day will emphasize arts-based practice strategies for partnering with communities to create innovative social change/social justice initiatives. Within the field of social work we often talk about community practice, and community organizing as macro approaches to build large-scale movements or community-based programs to promote social justice. Within disciplines in the arts, socially engaged art is an approach that aims to create art that engages with the public and/or social issues within society. This year’s social work day theme aims to bring together approaches from within social work, the arts, and civic/community engagement in order to highlight some creative strategies for social change. This year’s agenda has keynote speakers Dwayne D. Williams, Ed.D and Ilene Berman, MFA as we as a choice of five afternoon workshops.
