The focus of this year's institute is Love Pedagogy: Disrupting the Violence Against Young Bodies. Using installation art and writing, Visiting-Scholars Patricia Smith (poet) and Mark Nowak (documentary poet), along with the Ed Factory's senior consultant Lisa Arrastia and specialist Fadwa Abbas will spend two days engaging Institute Minneapolis fellows and a select number of their students in an experiential examination of the disruption, and the tangled complexities of self, other, and difference. The results of their work together will be on display and performed at the Capri Theater in North Minneapolis on Friday 6 March.
