This semester, ANU Students are invited to participate in an empowering program of master classes, designed and facilitated by leading journalist and activist Liz Deep-Jones. Liz Deep-Jones is the driving force behind the "We Bleed the Same" anti-racism exhibition, currently on show in the RSSS Building at ANU. Participants in the master class program will be encouraged to utilise diverse art & media platforms to express themselves in their fight for human rights and equality, and to call out racism.
Five masterclasses will be offered in Semester Two, with students expected to commit to the full series and to the production of their own art/media works.
