GOAL:

  • To experiment with the process of democratizing space.

  • To create an experential exhibit.

  • To increase participation in the arts of underrepresented participants.

  • To create a brave space for underrepresented students to commiserate on experiences pertaining to space and exclusion within dominant spaces.

  • To have a good time.
