POSTPONED: Boxes and Walls

From site: Intercultural & International Life

Boxes and Walls has been postponed until spring term. An experiential "museum" built by students for students, "Boxes and Walls" takes an interactive, emotional approach to diversity education

Saturday, January 26th, 2008
12:00 – 4:30 pm / LDC

This year's Boxes and Walls is an interactive integrative experience that seeks to illuminate themes of marginalization, oppression, discrimination and/or misconception based on personal realities. Topics covered have included class, gender, sexual orientation, ability, race, ethnicity, nationality and religious affiliation.

Boxes and Walls is a new beginning for fostering more interactive dialogues between faculty, staff, students and administration on a non-academic level.

Many other institutions also use Boxes and Walls productions to explore diversity education. The following are links to information on other museums.
