Engine for Art, Democracy, and Justice

Campos-Pons with Nashville artist Brandon Donahue in Space 204.

The trans-institutional Engine for Art, Democracy, and Justice initiative is an ongoing collaboration between Fisk University, the Frist Art MuseumMillions of Conversations, and Vanderbilt University that explores creative approaches to living together in the South. The program was founded by María Magdalena Campos-Pons, Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor of Art.

EADJ is a platform for academic, creative, and social explorations that take visual representation as a focus for developing new knowledge and new practices in a range of media. It is a forum for a diversity of approaches and inclusive discussion of experiments in cultural interconnections, historical entanglements, the consequences of geographies, histories, and politics. These are opportunities to engage with legacies toward more just and democratic futures.

Learn more about the initiative and plan to attend an event in their upcoming lineup of programming.
