Join us for a Keynote Workshop on Saturday, November 5 at 9:00 PST in the School of Art room 241.

Inner Borders/ Common Threads

Make, play, and collaborate through relational capacity-building art activities designed to tune us in to ourselves and each other while building radical empathy in the classroom and beyond. In this workshop, participants will be invited to connect through collaborative artmaking using fiber as material and metaphor, while examining how lived experience can be an asset in relational co-creation.

lydia see

lydia see (she/they/y’all) is a white, queer, neurodivergent Ashkenazi Jew, Northern by birth, relocated to the desert from lower Appalachia (unceded Cherokee and Yuchi land) to join the UA School of Art as Gallery Director + Gross Endowed Curator. As an artist who works across making, teaching, and curatorial practice both in and outside the institution, lydia is passionate about the intersections of art and cultural labor with social justice and civic engagement. As a serial collaborator, most of lydia’s work relies on co-creative relationships with artistic and curatorial peers, students, and members of impacted communities.
