We have all heard of white, male privilege, but the truth is that we all have varying amounts of privilege and disadvantages depending on our gender, race, class, religion, sexual orientation and more. We will discuss the systems of oppression that impact some people more than others, and determine who we want to be in the cycle of socialization. While we delve into this core level discussion of social justice theory, we will examine privilege through historical and contemporary art, and make our own piece reflecting privilege in the unique art of felting. Beginners welcome.
