Creating justice through art is the topic of a program Saturday at Oakton Community College, 1600 E. Golf Road, Des Plaines. The all-day symposium explores the diverse ways activism engages the arts, and the way art transforms our communities -- and the world. A wide range of artists and activists will discuss the ways in which activism and protest have shaped their work, the challenges they face, and how art can transform communities. The day includes a morning keynote address from New York-based performance group Strike Anywhere; an afternoon of workshops and panels on dance, music, photography and poetry; a live evening performance by Ugochi and Afro Soul Effect; and a global food fair. Registration is required, and $20 tickets include lunch, and morning and afternoon drinks and snacks. For information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
