About FIFSW Art Action

Founded in Fall 2021 by Amada Bastyr, Liz Beeforth, Chasity Hewitt-Brown, Mackenzie Mountford, Natalia Munive, and Ruka Watanabe, FIFSW Art Action is a collective of students on the margins who seek to:

  1. Offer arts-based spaces for FIFSW students and alumni on the margins to convene, create, and connect for collective care and action
  2. Document and sustain the creative resistance of FIFSW students and alumni on the margins by building collective memory that can support coalitional advocacy
  3. Advance efforts to expand work at the intersection of art and social work in pursuit of social justice.

The FIFSW Art Action started as a project as part of the course Theoretical Approaches to Defining Social Injustice & Engaging in Social Change (SWK4306) taught by Associate Professor Rupaleem Bhuyan. The students continued working together in the Winter semester in the course Globalization and Trans-nationalization: Intersections of Policy and Community Practice Locally and Globally (SWK4304), also taught by Prof. Bhuyan. The collective kept the initiative alive through the creation of the policy-focused event Blackout Policy Poetry and by working towards a gallery launch.
