Response Abilities: Generating Arts-based Research with Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Martin Luther King

FDR1

Arts-based researchers mediate their world through images gestures, sounds and words. They have the ability to respond to their environments with an inquiring mind and generate works of that extend our understandings of the world. In keeping with the conference goal “to highlight the interplay of research, politics, and social analysis” scholars from the Arts and Inquiry in the Visual and Performing Arts in Education and/or the Arts-based Educational Research SIGs will assemble at the Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) and Martin Luther King (MLK) monuments to create evocative responses. Rather than arriving overly prepared, they will a) respond to a particular element and b) invite those in attendance, including the public, to participate in this four-hour videotaped event.
