These Years

Photograph by Robert StribleyIn celebration of the fifth anniversary of our annual Art & Activism events series, SVACE presents an exhibition of images from our community—faculty, students, alumni, and friends—that addresses the global events of the last five years.

From fraught and revolutionary political elections, to the racial justice and gender equity movements that have rocked the world, to the accelerating climate catastrophe and the pandemic that has changed our lives and our hearts, the SVACE community has been watching, learning, and producing throughout.

Our community is transcultural, transgenerational, and always on the move. Together, we channel that energy to make our voices heard, tell our stories and triumphs, and inspire both action and compassion in our neighborhoods.

The purpose of continuing education is manifold, but one of its most viable goals is to expose oneself to a new and different world and build a community there. Every day is an opportunity to learn something—and to reinvent ourselves.
