SOAC + School of Art & Communication

Spring 2013 FOCUS Series

EMPOWERMENT

Challenging our assumptions about the way things are and can be. 

The 2012-13 SOAC Focus Series theme of empowerment explores the creative and artistic dimensions of the social process that fosters power in people for use in their own lives, communities and in their societies, by acting on issues they define as important. 

The focus series brings together SOAC’s talented students and faculty to focus on a common theme through a multi-disciplinary approach. These events present each discipline – Art & Design, Communication, Music and Theatre – dynamically interpreting “empowerment” through the panorama of their respective discipline. Each year, the theme selected will be relevant, timely, and appropriate to the mission of SOAC and PLU.
