Order from Chaos: An Arts-Based Approach to Counteract Trauma and Violence
Kay, Lisa; Arnold, Alice
Art Education, v67 n3 p31-36 May 2014
In this visual essay, NAEA Women's Caucus members gather at the National Convention to create collages in an effort to brainstorm ways to end violence. The mission of the Women's Caucus of the National Art Education Association is a clear call for equity between men and women and a call for social justice in general. Discriminatory practices and different cultural expectations can have negative effects that explode into violence. This essay is a visual and textual dialogue of ideas, images, and reflections to address the issue of violence that is so pervasive in our culture--in homes, schools, communities, and society at large--and a call to action to counteract violence. The art classroom provides a safe forum for expression, for raising awareness of what is appropriate speech and behavior, for realizing the consequences of words and actions, for collaboration on a project, and for reflecting together on the finished product(s) and the experience.
