Theology of the City: A Creative Twist

2 02 2010

dance Every student in the MA in Urban Studies Program at the School for Social Change is required to complete a Theology of the City paper. This assignment requires them to develop a theological response to key factors impacting an urban community . The average student would tackle this feat by pulling an all-nighter. But creative students are going about it in a different way…

Erica Brown, a first-year Arts in Transformation student, decided to use drama and dance to speak on HIV/AIDS.  Here’s what she had to say…

Arts in Transformation Student“Having the option to express myself through dance/drama elevates the pressure of conforming my thoughts, ideas, and expressions to someone else’s method of writing. Although I love writing, and appreciate the challenge of making myself more of a universal artist, I am a visual person and enjoy bringing text to life. I believe Richard Kamler said it best… ‘Art is our one true global language. It knows no nation, it favors no race, and it acknowledges no class. It speaks to our need to reveal, heal, and transform. It transcends our ordinary lives and lets us imagine what is possible.'”
