  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

Continuing Education Course



From Debate to Create


Imagine a world where creative artists advocate and educate to improve or eliminate such global issues as hunger, war, and poverty, or better yet, advocate for cultural participation in world affairs at the United Nations. In this course, artists and arts advocates develop creative proposals through socially engaged multi-disciplinary performance pieces about social issues such as those being addressed in the Model UN (The Model UN Program simulates activities in the General Assembly of the United Nations at colleges throughout the world). The goal of the course is to provide a context for artists to demonstrate the importance of the arts in solving conflicts. In a culminating, celebratory day of debate and performance, artists and audience come together to examine these creative proposals, through a structure of debate, caucus, collaboration, presentation, and voting. Course includes a special guest lecture. Course participants may also have an opportunity to take part in the Model UN at a university in Southern California in 2014.

Prerequisite: None (recommended for artists of all disciplines)

First class materials: $20 lab fee payable to instructor at first class meeting (Covers snack and meal during culminating debate and performance event)

Meets Weds., 9/11, 9/25, 10/9, 10/23, 11/6 & 11/20; plus one Sat., 12/7, from 1:00-9:00pm
