The 2013 Student Conference on Writing and Social Justice explores “acts of public creativity and participation in a digital age.” Events include a “collective joy crowd dance,” poetry slam with Jesse Parent, “graffiti wall for peace” and pizza party, at the campus fountain, beginning at 4 p.m. on April 25. Keynote presentations by Israeli graphic designer Ronny Edry and Utah dance activist Ashley Anderson take place April 26 at 1 p.m., followed by student presentations of their creative work for social justice.
