October 8 2017: Artwork developed by Students of Canadian University Dubai Communication School has been nominated for display at "Creative Disruption" Pop-up Group Exhibition in Philadelphia, USA. The exhibition is organized by Art United; a network of social justice artists who together create cultural exhibitions and events that intersect art and activism while shining the spotlight on three themes: Gender Justice, Climate Justice, and Racial Justice.
Art United believes that each piece of art is a vehicle that creates a common language towards understanding each other’s perspectives and the power of the visual arts is that it can be used as a tool for demystifying identity and differences, elevating public discourse, and catalyzing change.
Dr. Franziska Apprich, Professor at the School of Communication said she was proud of her students for getting involved in the She for She campaign, launched as a worldwide initiative to promote gender equality everywhere and noting being chosen for this exhibition was a great boost for the image of the university abroad and highlights its support for gender balance.
The Exhibition will be held in The Warehouse on Watts in Philadelphia on November 4th, 2017.
