The SMU-West Dallas Youth Cultural Initiative began through our enrollment in Bernado Diaz’s Artist Residency directed studies course, Art as Social Practice. We are now hoping to continue our workshops and events with the West Dallas community at the Bataan and McMilan centers beyond the scope of this directed studies course, on the basis of the networks and relationships we have already initiated in the area. We intend to:
• Develop and implement culturally-driven curriculum for students participating in the afterschool programs of the West Dallas Community Centers.
• Pilot a program at SMU that allows students to engage in cultural production outside the classroom
