Launch of Octopus Project at Universidad Austral
April 28, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
After weeks of virtually attending the ART 315 Socially Engaged Art course “The Octopus Project” lectures, a multidisciplinary team of professionals and practitioners from Universidad Austral, Buenos Aires presented today their social engagement participatory project to be implemented in Posta Sanitaria Las Lilas, a social project that provides health and wellness support services (education, finance, sports, and spiritual formation) to a marginalized community in the periphery of Buenos Aires.
“Proyecto Flor Posta Sanitaria” aims to involve the community as main actors of the School Support Program; make visible the program’s outcomes and impact; and allow families, volunteers and kids to share their experiences through social art.
Thank you, Prof. Xavier Cortada from the University of Miami, for sharing your class with our Hemispheric University Consortium members and translating your academic knowledge and art to promote positive social change in the hemispheric. This collaboration is part of the HUC Collaborative Online International Learning initiative.
