Hampshire College: Art and Social Action Program

The arts can help us break through the invisibility, the felt unknown of exclusion, and the shaping power of racism in American life. They can dislodge arrogance, certainty, conformity, and normality. Arts enable us to be surprised and moved, opening up the center, collapsing it, imploding it, and ultimately allowing us to recognize the creativity of and from the margins—where it’s not supposed to be.

Art doesn’t legislate change. It imagines change.  (from their website)
