Radar Redux.com is expanding the traditional concept of journalism, to cover a wide array of Baltimore Arts and Culture.
The combined individual and panel presentation focuses on envisioning a Community Arts University Without Walls (CAUWW). It will focus on the courses, course description, curricula with scholars, students and community activists that will provide the framework for establishing an accredited certificate in community arts.
This initiative will provide students with limited financial resources access to a culturally grounded educational experience focused on cultural equity, social justice and cultural rights. It is projected that the accredited graduate center El Centro de Estudios Avanzados de Puerto Rico y El Caribe (CEA) will be the institution that houses the certificate program. CEA will develop a partnership with MICA, New York University and other colleges and universities across the nation. The courses occur within communities, taught by scholars, community leaders and artists expert in concerns grounded in cultural equity, social justice and cultural rights.
