Some people might think of art as being easy-on-the-eye and created by professional artists to show off at fancy places.  Beverly Naidus, a professional in Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Washington, Tacoma, wants to make art accessible to anyone.  She doesn’t stop there though – she wants art to spur and encourage social change.

Guests:

Professor Beverly Naidus the author of “Arts for Change: Teaching Outside the Frame”.

Rachel Ervin is a writer and just graduated from UW Tacoma in Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, with an emphasis in Arts, Media and Culture.

Jenn Soikowski.is a current student at UW Tacoma with a double emphasis.  One in Ethnic, Gender and Labor Studies and the other in Arts, Media and Culture, with an emphasis in Visual Art.
